RCMP are looking for witnesses to an “horrific” head-on collision on Highway 3A at Thrums last Friday afternoon.

Around 5:20 p.m., an eastbound 2003 Ford Expedition driven by a 57-year-old Castlegar woman crossed the centre line and struck a westbound 1998 Pontiac Sunfire driven by a 36-year-old Castlegar woman. The Pontiac driver suffered severe injuries, while the driver of the other vehicle wasn’t hurt.

Police are still investigating the cause.

In a news release, Cpl. John Ferguson of West Kootenay Traffic Services asked any witnesses to the crash who have not already spoken to police to contact them.

He thanked the Tarrys Fire Department for their “prompt and professional service,” as well as the motoring public “who were patient while this horrific crash scene was investigated.”

Traffic was delayed for several hours.

Both drivers were wearing seatbelts.
