Revelstoke RCMP reported a vehicle rollover on Monday involving a family of three who experienced only minor injuries.

Cpl. Thomas Blakney with the Revelstoke RCMP said a man, a woman and a six-year old boy were treated for minor injuries but their vehicle was a write-off.

“The vehicle was demolished,” said Blakney. “The east-bound vehicle crossed the centre line and rolled over into the west-bound ditch.”

RCMP said that drugs and alcohol were not a factor.

“The driver was drinking water and we believe it went down the wrong pipe, he started gasping for air and then started to lose consciousness which led to the loss of control of the vehicle,” said Blakney.

The accident occurred approx. 35 km west of Revelstoke on Apr. 1, east of the Skyline Esso Truck Stop.

“The accident occurred just as you cross the bridge from the Skyline Esso heading towards Revelstoke, in between the Esso and Crazy Creek,” said Blankly.

RCMP would not release their names but they believe the vehicle occupants were an Alberta family who were driving home to the Red Deer area.

They were treated for their injuries and released with no complications.
