The driver was air lifted from Watson Lake, to hospital in Vancouver for treatment. The cause of the collision is still under investigation, but it does not appear that drugs or alcohol played a role.

The Northern Rockies RCMP would like to thank the employees of White Bear Industries, and Liard River Lodge, who attended and provided first aid to the badly injured driver. These individuals provided care for close to three hours while waiting for emergency services to arrive from Fort Nelson and Watson Lake, Yukon.
