Salmon Arm  

Three crashes over weekend

Salmon Arm responders were busy over the weekend attending motor vehicle crashes.

The most serious incident involved a head-on crash between a motorcycle and a truck on Saturday. 

"Police and ambulance responded to a two-vehicle collision in the 6000 block of Park Hill Road in Salmon Arm. At the scene it was determined that a motorcycle had crossed the centre line in the curve and hit a Ford truck head on," said Sgt. Scott West of the Salmon Arm detachment.

"Thankfully the rider of the motorcycle suffered non-life-threatening injuries and the driver of the truck was relatively unharmed."

Also on Saturday, RCMP attended the scene of a property damage hit and run on 40th Street NE.

"A pick-up truck failed to negotiate an intersection at that location, crashed through a cement barricade and then hit a residence at that location," said West. "The vehicle then reversed in the yard hitting other property and fled the area."

Police are following up the investigation into this matter based on evidence located at the scene, West added. The occupants of the house were unharmed as a result of the crash.

On Friday, police responded to a single-vehicle crash on 10th Avenue SE at 6th Street SE at around 7:30 p.m.

"A vehicle left the road at that location and did not impact another vehicle. The driver and passenger were unharmed and left with family from the scene," West said.
