Inattention leads to crash

It pays to look where you are going.

A member of the Salmon Arm RCMP was on patrol just before 4 a.m. on Sunday morning when he came across a single vehicle crash at the Highway 97B and Trans-Canada Highway intersection.

"A truck being driven north on Highway 97B by a 29-year-old male from Salmon Arm, failed to stop or turn at the Trans Canada intersection and drove straight across the Trans Canada Highway at highway speed," said Staff Sgt. Scott West, detachment commander. "The vehicle then collided with the embankment on the north side of the Trans Canada Highway."

West said both the driver and a passenger were taken to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. As well, the vehicle was heavily damaged.

"Alcohol was ruled out as a causal factor in the collision and it is believed that driver inattention played a factor in the crash."
