Truck launches off Hwy. 33

Two people heading to Big White for a day of skiing are unhurt after their vehicle left the road on Highway 33 Wednesday morning.

The incident occurred about 1km east of the hairpin on Highway 33.

According to Castanet reporter, Jen Zielinski, the pair apparently took the corner too fast sending then off the highway.

The pick-up truck went down a small embankment and took out part of a fence before coming to rest on its roof.

Roads were very slushy at the time of the crash.

Tow trucks are on scene and emergency crews may have to close at least one lane of the Highway briefly while they work at retrieving the truck.
