A collision on the Salmon River Bridge early Tuesday morning led to the temporary closure of the Trans-Canada Highway.
Salmon Arm RCMP report that the crash took place about 12:45 a.m.
An Ontario-registered truck with three occupants was heading west on the highway when an eastbound Alberta truck with a lone occupant crossed the centre line.
“As a result the vehicles collided,” states the police report. “The impact did extensive damage to both trucks but due to evasive action taken by the driver of the Ontario-registered vehicle, the impact force was greatly reduced. None of the
occupants of the vehicles were hospitalized.”
Police say their investigation, which included information from a witness who was travelling on the highway at the time,
resulted in a ticket for driving with undue care and attention to the male driver of the Alberta vehicle.
