A grader working for YRB road maintenance ended up in the Lardeau River last week. The incident happened Tuesday afternoon on Highway 31 near the dump.
Witnesses say the vehicle was totally submerged. The operator reportedly got out on his own but injured his arm.
“We recovered it with two wreckers,” YRB equipment manager Craig Lisk says. “Currently it’s at Finning and we’re going through it.”
He did not have a damage estimate, and said the cause of the accident remains under investigation.
