According to the North District RCMP spokesperson Madonna Saunderson, the incident occurred between 15 Mile Road & Buckhorn Lake Road just before 1 AM Monday morning.

“The pick-up truck driver looks to be at fault, he crossed the centre line and went head-on with a semi. The semi driver has some minor but non-life threatening injuries and there were two other passengers in the pick-up truck,”

Saunderson says both passengers of the pickup truck are in critical condition.

Drive BC says the road is expected to re-open at 10 AM.
