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 last Wednesday.
Enderby RCMP report that an eastbound car, driven by a Salmon Arm woman, was unable to negotiate the corner at the bottom of the Highway 97B hill near Baird Brothers Ltd. and collided with a northbound pick-up truck from North Dakota on Highway 97A.
A family member states that loose gravel on the corner from recent heavy rains was the cause. The accident occurred about noon on Canada Day.
A couple in the truck, along with the driver, were taken to hospital to have their injuries treated.
Traffic was re-routed around the accident scene for several hours as RCMP investigated.
