A serious motor vehicle incident two kilometres south of McLeese Lake Saturday at around 11 a.m. resulted in one male driver being sent to hospital in Kamloops by helicopter.

RCMP said the driver suffered serious injuries.

“Police believe a south bound car lost control at the end of a passing lane, did several 180-degree turns and was T-boned by a truck and trailer that was north bound,” said Sgt. Bob Verbree, Regional Commander Cariboo Chilcotin Traffic Services, in a press release Saturday.

Verbree said at the time of the incident, the roads were bare and wet with slush in the middle and on the shoulders. The temperature was approximately 2 C degrees, with overcast skies.

The RCMP traffic analyst is on the scene and a police investigation continues, Verbree noted.

“Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be factors in the incident.”

Police are reminding all drivers to be prepared for winter driving conditions and to drive according to existing conditions.
