There were a number of minor incidents on Shuswap roads during Monday’s snowfall, the worst leaving Sicamous residents without power for much of Monday after a semi collided with a power pole.

BC Hydro said the incident took place about 10:48 a.m., when a semi tractor-trailer jackknifed on the Trans-Canada Highway and hit a power pole near the Sicamous Husky. About 900 properties were affected.

A vehicle also went over the embankment 10 kilometres east of Salmon Arm, but no one was seriously hurt.
