The 26-year-old Fruitvale woman was driving her truck westbound when the vehicle suddenly began fishtailing. The truck slid into the path of a 35-year-old Nelson man driving the commercial transport truck. The collision caused both vehicles to end up off the highway. The drivers sustained head injuries and were transported by BC EHS to the local hospital for a medical assessment.

The debris field from the incident was extensive. Traffic was delayed for several hours while road maintenance and two towing companies assisted the RCMP clearing the roadway.

Officers believed the poor weather conditions and icy road surface were factors in the cause of the incident.

Over the weekend, winter driving road conditions came into effect at all elevations in the West Kootenays. First responders attended several motor vehicle incidents on our roads. Trail and Greater District RCMP would like to remind the public to slow down and drive to winter road conditions. Road maintenance trucks need time to plow and sand roads so being prepared and driving defensively are your best tools against crashes this season. Plan all driving ahead of time and always check road and weather conditions before you leave on
