The single occupant of the vehicle sustained injuries not believed to be life-threatening and was taken to 100 Mile House Hospital. RCMP were then called to a vehicle rollover on Highway 97 near Bjornson Rd. A vehicle hit ice and lost control which led to a rollover in the ditch. The driver of the vehicle was taken to 100 Mile House Hospital for injuries not believed to be life-threatening. RCMP then came across another vehicle collision on Highway 97 near Kitwanga Rd. It was determined that the vehicle lost control on icy roads before hitting the ditch and rolling several times. The driver of this vehicle sustained injuries not believed to be life-threatening and was taken to 100 Mile House Hospital. Two additional minor collisions were also reported to RCMP during this time. Weather and extremely icy road conditions were a factor in each of the incidents due to a snowfall that had occurred in these areas overnight.
