KAMLOOPS - A man is in Royal Inland Hospital and police are warning drivers to guard against fatigue after a highway crash in Chase this morning.

Around 8 a.m., July 13, Chase RCMP and B.C. Ambulance Services were called to a single vehicle accident on Highway 1.

A westbound red Nissan Titan with a driver and two passengers crossed the highway centre line, continued across the highway, hit a rock face on the far side and rolled back onto the highway, according to a police press release.

The driver, a Calgary man, has been transported to the hospital for assessment. The two male passengers were treated on the scene.

Police believe fatigue played a role in the collision, and are reminding drivers to be aware of fatigue when travelling.
