Tuesday, Sept. 30
On Sept. 30 at 2:27 a.m., Williams Lake RCMP received a call from a driver on Highway 97 North that a vehicle had just side swiped his vehicle causing his GMC pickup to enter the ditch.
The driver advised he could no longer see the other vehicle.
Officers responded and located the other vehicle, a blue Volkswagen Jetta also in the ditch.
The driver of the Volkswagen said he swerved to avoid a deer while driving north and ended up in the oncoming lane.
In doing so, he hit the southbound GMC pickup on the driver’s side causing the pickup to lose control and spin into the ditch.
The vehicles came to rest 100 metres away from each other.
The drivers of both vehicles were transported to the Cariboo Memorial Hospital.
Both drivers were treated for minor injuries then released.
Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this incident and this matter is still under investigation.
