Eastbound traffic swerved into the oncoming lane to avoid the rocks. Police responded and were on site until road maintenance crews arrived and closed down an eastbound lane of traffic. This lane was closed for several days while additional loose rocks were removed. No injuries or property damage was reported.

Ice risky

On March 18 at 4:45 p.m., Chase RCMP received a report of young people jumping on the ice covering Little Shuswap Lake. The youths left the area prior to police arriving. Police would like to remind the public that due to spring temperatures, ice conditions can change quickly and caution should be used.
