On Wednesday, August 2, 2023, Terrace RCMP responded to a report of a two-vehicle crash on Highway 16 near Usk Frontage Road approximately 20 kms east of Terrace.

Once on scene police found two pickup trucks, a Ford and a Toyota, had collided head on. The driver of the Ford was trapped inside the vehicle, while the driver of the Toyota was out of the vehicle.
