Second crash in two weeks

There has been another accident at a dangerous Okanagan intersection.

Salmon Arm RCMP Staff Sgt. Scott West said on Aug 22. at approximately 12:45 p.m., emergency crews were called to a collision on the Trans Canada Highway at Balmoral Road.

“During the investigation at the scene officers were able to determine that a white Ford truck was crossing the highway on Balmoral. As it did so it was struck by a Honda car that was eastbound on the Trans Canada Highway,” said West.

“The two people in the truck suffered minor injuries and were not transported to hospital. The driver of the car was transported to Royal Inland Hospital for treatment of neck and back injuries.”

The driver of the truck was given a violation ticket for failing to yield after a stop under the provincial motor vehicle act.

“Police urge caution at this intersection and any intersection for that matter. This is the second injury collision at this intersection in the last two weeks,” said West. “Police are aware that the intersection is slated for upgrades that will change the traffic pattern and provide for greater safety. Until these changes are constructed please take your time through this intersection, the extra seconds or minutes you take as a driver will make it safer for everyone.”
