This notorious April 28 crash rained a load of pig blood all over a residential property next to the Trans-Canada Highway in Revelstoke. Look closely at the truck's skid mark. It appears the truck went over when it hit the big rut in the middle of the road. The stretch the truck travelled just before the crash was also littered with potholes.

Nearly 4,000 people voted in the BCAA ‘Worst Roads’ online poll, which was open from May 3 to 24. Drivers were invited to nominate the road (or bridge or tunnel) in or near their community that they feel is most in need of improvement. A road could be identified as ‘worst’ either because it is in poor condition, unsafe or frequently congested.
