Two women from Nelson are in serious condition after a motorist collided head on with their vehicle on Highway 93/95 near Skookumchuck on Sunday, June 9.
The Nelson mother and her adult daughter were travelling south towards Cranbrook when a lone female driver in the northbound lane crossed the centre line and crashed straight into them.
A Kimberley RCMP officer traveling through the area came across the crash and notified BC Ambulance.
Initially all three occupants were trapped in the vehicles. Once removed they were transported to East Kootenay Regional Hospital, then transferred to a hospital in Calgary.
Police believe alcohol is a factor and are currently gathering further evidence.
