Icy roads and heavy fog may have caused a two-vechicle collision north of Williams Lake Nov. 7.

Williams Lake RCMP attended the scene of an accident on Hwy. 97, south of Blue Lake Road at approximately 6:42 a.m.

A south-bound older model Toyoto pickup had truck lost control, spinning sideways across the centre line, striking a north-bound, Ford F550 service truck.

The female driver in the Toyota was pinned inside the heavily damaged vehicle.

BC Ambulance attended to both drivers and transported them to Cariboo Memorial Hospital for serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

Around 8 a.m., DriveBC reported the highway closed in both lanes due to the accident, but within half an hour was one lane was opened and by 10 a.m. both lanes were open.

Williams Lake RCMP continue to investigate the accident, stating alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the collision.
