Dog goes missing following crash in Rogers Pass

One person taken to hospital with minor injuries and dog missing following three vehicle crash in Glacier National Park Thursday afternoon.

The search is on for a missing dog following a three vehicle crash that sent one person to hospital with minor injuries in Glacier National Park early Thursday afternoon.

The crash took place just after 1 p.m. near the Loop Brook Bridge, six kilometres west of the Rogers Pass summit, said Marnie DiGiandomenico, a spokesperson for Parks Canada.

“Essentially one vehicle fish-tailed and tried to recover and in that process they sideswiped a truck that was towing a trailer with two snowmobiles… and another vehicle,” she said.

Sgt. Kim Hall of the Revelstoke RCMP said that an eastbound Toyota Tacoma skidded and collided with two westbound vehicles – a Subaru and a Dodge Ram towing two snowmobiles.

The 28-year-old driver of the Tacoma experienced minor injuries and was taken to Queen Victoria Hospital in Revelstoke. One person out of three in the Subaru had minor injuries and was treated on scene, and the two occupants of the Dodge Ram were uninjured.

In the aftermath, a 10-month-old, 90 per cent wolf dog named Trig ran off; he has yet to be found. It belongs to the driver of the Tacoma.

Last December a dog went missing following a fatal crash in Rogers Pass. It was found five days later when the owners went looking for it.

DriveBC is reporting compact snow and slippery sections through the park, though DiGiandomenico and Hall said road conditions were good.

“We do have good road conditions but we are experiencing high traffic volumes and speed is always a factor,” said DiGiandomenico.
