Narrative:
A privately operated Cessna 172, was on a cross country VFR flight from Qualicum Beach (CAT4), BC; Sechelt (CAP3), BC; Pitt Meadows (CYPK), BC; Princeton (YDC), BC; Oliver (CAU3), BC; with an ultimate destination of Castlegar (CYCG), BC. Shortly after departure from CAT4 the pilot elected not to fly into Sechelt due to poor visibilities and low ceilings, and continued on to Pitt Meadows where the ceilings were about 1 500 feet AGL, and from there toward Hope, BC where the ceilings lowered to about 1 000 feet AGL. When 6.5 NM SE of Hope, BC the aircraft collided with trees. JRCC received a signal from the aircraft’s 406 MHz ELT and the pilot also triggered an SOS signal on the SPOT network and RCMP were dispatched to the accident site.
The pilot received minor injuries and walked from the accident site to Highway 3 where the RCMP found her. The aircraft sustained substantial damage; there was no post-impact fire.
