Truck crash at Slocan Park

Semi-trailer crashes at Crescent Valley

The driver of a DCT Chambers truck suffered minor injuries when her vehicle went off Highway 6 at Crescent Valley this morning.

The driver of a northbound DCT Chambers truck suffered only minor injuries when her vehicle went off Highway 6 at Crescent Valley around 7:20 a.m. this morning.

RCMP Cpl. John Ferguson with West Kootenay Traffic Services said the driver had just started work and was rounding a corner, trying to downshift, when she got too close to the road’s edge.

The empty truck took out a couple of trees as it landed in the ditch, clipped two power poles, and came to rest on its wheels.

The driver was taken to hospital in Nelson as a precaution. The power poles were bent but did not actually topple. FortisBC crews have been on site.

(CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story stated the crash happened at Slocan Park.)
