A 16-year-old Vancouver girl was sexually assaulted after getting into a stranger’s pickup truck on the Trans Canada Highway, RCMP said yesterday.

The girl accepted the ride after failing to hail down a bus around 10 p.m. Monday. The driver of the truck later pulled over to the side of the road. He then sexually assaulted the girl before throwing her and her belongings out of the vehicle, police said.

Police are asking for assistance in identifying the suspect.
