The Canada Day celebration at 108 Heritage Site started off with a bang of the wrong kind when the driver of Chevrolet pickup truck crashed into a Nissan SUV at the Highway 97 entrance to the site. The force of the collision propelled the Nissan into a stopped U-Haul van.

A multiple vehicle collision occurred on Canada Day (July 1) at the north entrance to 108 Mile Ranch that resulted in minor injuries for four people.

At 10:38 a.m., 100 Mile House RCMP and the 108 Mile Ranch Volunteer Fire Department rescue services were called out to the collision on Highway 97 at the intersection of Kitwanga Drive, just in front of the 108 Heritage Site.

The RCMP report reveals a Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck turned left across the south-bound lane and impacted a black Nissan Pathfinder, pushing that vehicle into a stationary U-Haul van waiting to turn onto the Highway.

The female driver of the Chevrolet S-10 was transported to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops for treatment of a broken ankle.

The other three occupants of the pickup truck and the SUV were treated at the scene by first responders and BC Ambulance Service crews. Then they were transported to 100 Mile District General Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Having sustained extensive damage, those vehicles were towed from the scene.

The driver of the U-Haul van was not injured and that vehicle did not require towing.

The police investigation into the collision is still underway.
