UPDATE: 3:10 p.m., April 26

According to an RCMP press release, police have determined that an SUV travelling west on the Trans-Canada Highway with three occupants inside crossed over the centre line into the path of an eastbound semi truck.

The driver of the semi was not injured and the three occupants of the SUV received injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening. An air ambulance was dispatched to the scene because the call seemed more serious at first.

The police do not believe speed or alcohol are factors in the crash.

UPDATE: 1 p.m.

Multiple injuries are reported to have occurred in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 1 east of Sicamous.

At least two people were said to have been transported to Shuswap Lake General Hospital in Salmon Arm as a result of the collision involving an SUV and a transport truck. An air ambulance helicopter was also seen being used to transport another person involved in the collision.

Responding emergency rescue personnel included BC Emergency Health Services paramedics, Eagle Valley Rescue Society members, firefighters and RCMP.
