Police are reminding motorists to adjust their driving to road conditions after a two-vehicle collision at 108 Mile House Tuesday morning.
On Nov. 15, at 7:26 a.m. the 100 Mile House RCMP were called to a report of a two vehicle collision on Highway 97 just south of Easzee Dr. near the 108 Mile Ranch.
100 Mile House Fire Rescue, 108 Mile Fire Dept, and BC Ambulance also attended.
“It was determined that a pickup truck travelling south bound and an SUV travelling north bound were involved in a head on collision,” the RCMP said in a press release. “A female driver and single occupant of the south bound truck was taken to 100 Mile House Hospital for treatment for what are believed to be non life-threatening injuries.”
The female who was driving the SUV, and was the lone occupant, was initially taken to 100 Mile House Hospital for treatment but has now been taken to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops for what are believed to be significant injuries.
Highway 97 was blocked in both directions while crews worked on removing the female from the SUV and a scene investigation was conducted.
The highway has now been re-opened completely.
Road and weather conditions at the time were a factor in the collision, police said, noting the collision remains under investigation.
Any witnesses to this incident are asked to call the 100 Mile House RCMP.
