Two people are in hospital after a serious accident on Highway 6 in the Slocan Valley yesterday.

The accident happened at 5:15 p.m. near Cunningham Road. RCMP reports a red 2000 Pontiac Grand Am was headed southbound on Highway 3 when he suddenly veered into the oncoming lane. He was a 59-year-old man from Salmo.

The driver of the second vehicle, a 62-year-old male from Silverton, attempted to avoid the collision by moving to the right.

The Grand Am struck his 2000 Ford pick-up and the truck overturned twice before coming to rest in the ditch.

“People on scene assisted in removing the driver of the truck before the ambulance arrived,” said Sgt. Darryl Little of the RCMP Kootenay Boundary Regional Detachment.

Both drivers were taken to Trail hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Alcohol isn’t suspected as a factor in this incident. No charges have been laid yet as the investigation is ongoing.
