Two accidents in less than 20 min.

A green GMC pickup S15 with approximately $2

“The long weekend started out with a bang but eventually the remainder of the weekend went smooth,” reported Barriere RCMP Cpl. Mike Mucha last week.

On Friday, May 20, at 10:11 a.m. police were dispatched to a two vehicle no injury MVI initially at Highway 5 and Station Road.  Upon attendance RCMP determined a semi truck was travelling north on Conner Road and turned right, and collided with a green GMC pickup S15 that was facing eastbound on Borthwick Avenue.

The semi drove into the pickups passenger side door pushing it sideways.  Damage to the pickup estimated at $2,500, and to the semi at $1,000.  No charges were considered.

Then very closely within the same time frame at 10:28 a.m. a call came in to police reporting an injury accident on Highway 5 near the Kingdom Hall, Barriere.  Police, Fire, Barriere Search and Rescue, and Ambulance attended.  A white Nissan pickup was travelling north bound and while negotiating through the long sweeping corner went off road, right into the east ditch and rolled.  The driver, from Louis Creek, was ejected and as a result was transported to Royal Inland Hospital with serious injuries.

Cpl. Mucha states that the highway was very busy at the time.  Barriere RCMP are continuing their investigation, reporting it is too early to determine if charges are applicable.
