Friday morning traffic on the Trans-Canada Highway west of Salmon Arm has returned to normal after is being disrupted by a collision on the west side of Kault Hill.

The road had been reduced to single alternating lane traffic near the Trickle Inn, after reports of a burgundy SUV sideswiping a semi-trailer.

The Salmon Arm RCMP say the semi-trailer was travelling east and the SUV was travelling west. Wet pavement is believed to be a contributing factor in the accident.

An ambulance was seen leaving the scene, however police say neither vehicle’s driver had any apparent injuries.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
