Five injured in Saturday morning collision south of Williams Lake

A two-vehicle collision on Highway 97 south of the Sugarcane reserve Saturday morning sent five people to hospital.

The accident occurred around 9 a.m. and involved a 2008 Honda Civic occupied by a male and a female and a 2003 Ford Explorer-Sport Trac in which two males and a female were travelling.

The Civic was travelling north on the highway when it struck the southbound Explorer that had lost traction on black ice and crossed into the northbound lane. Both vehicles ended up in the northbound ditch.

The passengers' injuries ranged from a broken neck and abdominal to soft-tissue injuries. All occupants were transported to Cariboo Memorial Hospital.

The Williams Lake RCMP are investigating the collision. Any individuals who witnessed the accident are asked to contact the RCMP at 250-392-3997.
