Four car pile-up slows Highway 97
Four cars ranging in damage blocked the intersection at Hwy.97 and Edwards Road Sunday afternoon.
Fortunately all vehicle occupants were able to get out safely but RCMP on the scene say they will all be taken to hospital for a full check up.
Officers on the scene were unable to say how exactly the four cars collided and ended up in the intersection facing different directions, as their investigation was just beginning and it was not being made clear by witnesses.
Two of the cars were driven by young men who were being interviewed by police.
A dozen pink roses laid scattered in the intersection coming from inside the most damaged red sedan.
Traffic was single lane alternating for over an hour while crews cleaned up the crash scene.
