Train traffic was stopped Monday afternoon after someone fleeing police ditched their pick-up truck on the railway tracks in Cloverdale.

RCMP in Langley became aware of the vehicle about 1 p.m.

It's not clear whether a chase ensued, but the person in the truck pulled onto the train tracks at 168 Street south of Highway 10 and drove about 200 metres down the track.

The truck was abandoned next to a stopped train.

Police are still looking for the suspect.
