Multi-vehicle accident in Yoho National Park
One person sustained minor injuries after six vehicles, including a Field Fire vehicle, were involved in an accident inside Yoho National Park on Highway 1.
Slippery road conditions and a lack of winter tires on at least one vehicle are being blamed for the accident.
The incident started with a single vehicle rollover, but by the time Field Fire & Rescue arrived on scene, a semi had also rolled over.
While ambulance and fire rescue personnel from Field were surveying the scene, a semi truck lost control and glanced off the Ambulance and Field Fire’s light rescue truck.
The fire truck caught on fire but the crew was able to extinguish it quickly. None of the emergency personnel were injured in the incident and the damage to the vehicles is currently being assessed.
Field Fire Chief Sean Coubrough praised the co-operation between the Field, Golden, Nicholson and Revelstoke fire departments during the ordeal.
