Jaws of life used in Connector crash

The jaws of life had to be used to extricate at least one woman out of her damaged vehicle following a Wednesday morning crash on the Okanagan Connector. 

A Castanet reporter on the scene says a man and woman were taken to hospital with minor injuries. 

The truck is believed to have slammed into the back of a flatbed trailer travelling westbound.

The connector remains open at this time, but the crash has disrupted one lane of westbound traffic at this time.

It is not known at this time what caused the accident, but slick conditions and heavy fog are currently being blamed.
