Two taken to hospital in crash involving cement truck on Trans-Canada near Salmon Arm


Two people were taken to hospital after a crash involving a SUV, a cement truck and a pickup on the Trans-Canada Highway just west of Salmon Arm this morning.

The accident occurred on Highway 1 near White Lake west of Salmon Arm at approximately 7:45 a.m. today, Oct. 28, according to a B.C. Highway Patrol media release.

Investigators determined the eastbound cement truck attempted to avoid a collision with a merging white SUV and lost control, crashing into the centre concrete divider and rolling over. A westbound pickup truck collided with one of the concrete barriers that had been dislodged into the westbound lanes.

The accident resulted in two drivers being taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

B.C. Highway Patrol is asking for witnesses to come forward, in particular the occupant or occupants of the white SUV.

Anyone with information about this collision is asked to contact the B.C. Highway Patrol in Revelstoke at 250-805-2111 and quote file 2021-5280.
