Three injured in MVI on Trans-Canada

One person flown to hospital in Kelowna and two transported to hospital in Golden following Aug. 6 MVI

One person suffering from serious injuries was flown by helicopter to Kelowna General Hospital on Monday, Aug. 6 following a motor vehicle crash on the Trans-Canada.

The incident happened at about 11:30 a.m. at a location about 107 kilometres east of Revelstoke on the eastern side of Rogers Pass.

BC Ambulance Service spokesperson Kelsie Carwithen said the incident involved two vehicles that had rolled over and crashed into the ditch.

Four people were involved in the crash. One person suffering from serious injuries was flown to hospital in Kelowna, while two others with non life threatening injuries were transported to hospital in Golden. The fourth refused treatment.

The Golden RCMP were not immediately available for comment, so further details on the cause of the crash are not available.

Revelstoke RCMP responded to other MVIs on the Trans-Canada near Revelstoke on Monday.

A Revelstoke RCMP spokesperson said a four-vehicle rear-ender just west of Revelstoke in the early afternoon didn’t result in any injuries. One vehicle failed to notice slowing traffic and crashed into the vehicle in front of it propelling it into two more cars ahead.
