Woman in hospital, car totalled after slipping off highway

January 20, 2014 - 1:30 PM

KAMLOOPS - A woman was taken to hospital this morning after hitting a slippery section on the Coquihalla Highway, rolling her car several times and totalling it.

Kamloops rural RCMP reported the lone occupant was travelling towards Kamloops from the Lower Mainland when she lost control of her silver sedan, hitting a piece of ‘frosty glazed highway' about 10:15 a.m. today.

The vehicle went off the road into the ditch where it rolled before reentering the highway, rolling several more times and finally resting in the fast lane.

The woman managed to get out of the vehicle on her own, but she was transported to the Royal Inland Hospital by ambulance with ‘undetermined injuries.’

Police are reminding drivers to be conscious of dangerous road conditions in early mornings despite recent warmer weather.
