Late Monday evening, the RCMP in Williams Lake responded to a head on collision on Mackenzie Ave just south of Soda Creek Road.

It is believed that a north bound black car was traveling well in excess of the speed limit, and lost control negotiating a long sweeping corner and collided head on with a red Dodge pick up, the RCMP said in a press release.

The black car then rolled down over an embankment to the train tracks and overturned. Several persons including the driver of the black car were trapped and had to be removed with the Jaws of life.

A traffic analyst was en route from Prince George and all involved in the collision were removed to hospital in Williams Lake.

Police believe that alcohol and speed may be the contributing factors and said the investigation is ongoing.
