97C rollover slows traffic

RCMP and emergency crews responded to several calls of vehicles off the road near Brenda Mine on Highway 97C Wednesday afternoon.

The roads are clear, but the temperatures are ripe for the build-up of black ice and witnesses report limited viability.

Steven Chickloski says, "We were on the back to Kelowna from Vancouver. The roads were clear until the Brenda Mine area, then it was fairly foggy and there were slippery sections."

Here are the conditions form DriveBC:

Limited visibility with fog on Highway 97C both directions - limited visibility with fog from Pennask Summitt (1728 metres) to Brenda Mine Road Exit (10.1 km). Updated Wed Jan. 2 at 12:06 p.m.
