Heavy fog, black ice near Brenda Mine

Black ice and fog are again causing havoc on 97c - at least one person was taken to hospital when a vehicle rolled into the side of a gully.

A semi also ran into the median and a pick up truck was smashed nearby.

Visibility is very limited and the road, although bare, is extremely slippery.  Large tow trucks are on scene trying to free the semi.

The highway is down to one lane for both directions as crews work to free the wreck.

Heavy fog and icy conditions are a factor and motorists are encouraged to drive with extra caution in that area.
