No serious injuries after MVI at Hodgson Road and Highway 20 Tuesday

Two people were transported to hospital for minor injuries after a MVI at Hodgson Road and Highway 20 Tuesday.

A motor vehicle incident at Hodgson Road and Highway 20 in Williams Lake Tuesday afternoon resulted in two people being transported to hospital for minor neck injuries and whiplash.

At around 2:20 p.m. the RCMP, B.C. Ambulance and Williams Lake fire department responded to the incident.

Police said a turquoise pickup truck attempting to cross the highway on Hodgson Road collided with a blue van travelling down the highway. The truck rolled onto the driver’s side.

“There was a logging truck in front of the blue van and they were coming down Highway 20 there,” Williams Lake RCMP Const. Jeremy Roberts said. “The pickup truck was coming down Hodgson Road and trying to cross the highway. He said he didn’t see the blue van and went right in front of them.”

There was one person in the truck, and three people in the van, including a young boy.

“No serious injuries which is nice,” Roberts added.
