Three people were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries following a motor-vehicle accident at the junction of Highways 97A and 97B outside of Enderby Wednesday.

RCMP say an eastbound car, driven by a Salmon Arm woman, failed to correctly negotiate the corner at the bottom of the Highway 97B hill near Baird Brothers Ltd. and collided with a northbound pick-up from North Dakota on Highway 97A.

The accident happened at around noon on Canada Day.

A couple in the truck, along with the Salmon Arm woman, were taken to hospital to have their injuries checked out and treated.

Traffic was re-routed around the accident scene for several hours as RCMP investigated.
