Revelstoke RCMP attended to multiple vehicle incidents in the evening of Sunday, Feb. 1.

At approximately 7 p.m., police were called to an incident approximately 40 kilometres west of Revelstoke on the Trans-Canada Highway where two commercial tractor trailers struck each other head on.

The eastbound truck lost control on the slippery surface and struck the westbound truck. Both vehicles sustained serious damage in excess of $10,000 and were inoperable. Both required to be removed from the scene. Neither driver was injured as a result. Both were travelling at slow speeds.

As a result of this incident, a further incident occurred where a passenger bus stopping for the original accident struck another tractor trailer. The incident caused enough damage that a replacement bus was required. No injuries resulted. The bus was also towed from the scene.

Two further incidents were then reported on similar portions of the highway.

The accident resulted in a highway closure that ended at approximately 12:30 a.m. on Monday Feb. 2.

On Highway 23 North, a vehicle experienced serious damage after being involved in a rock slide that occurred about 80 kilometres north of Revelstoke with serious damage.

The road is being assessed to determine the safety of rock removal and possible time to re-open.

Over the weekend there were a total of 7 reported incidents to the police. The driving public is reminded to utilize proper winter tires and to drive to the conditions.
