Enderby woman victim in collision in Tappen

 

A 26-year-old Enderby woman was flown to hospital in Kamloops with serious injuries following a collision near the Tappen Co-op Wednesday morning.

Police report that officers responded to a collision at 7:28 a.m. Feb. 19 at the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway and Tappen Station Road, just east of the Tappen Co-op service station. An eastbound semi-trailer had decelerated and was in the process of turning left off the highway onto the road. An eastbound Chevrolet Avalanche truck was following but the driver apparently didn't realize or notice that the semi had slowed. The truck narrowly avoided the semi by braking and driving to the right of the semi. At the same instant, another semi that had been following the Avalanche tried to avoid rear-ending it and veered into the oncoming lane where it struck a westbound Honda Civic.

The driver and sole occupant of the Honda was transported from the scene by helicopter. No word yet on her condition.
