Wet roads are being cited as the cause of a single-vehicle accident that sent three people to hospital on Sunday evening.

Wet roads are being cited as the cause of a single-vehicle accident that sent three people to hospital on Sunday evening.

The crash took place on the westbound passing lane on the Trans-Canada Highway about 20 kilometres west of Revelstoke, just past the Three Valleg Gap hotel, said RCMP Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen.

A red Dodge pickup truck passed a tractor-trailer, but when the driver attempted to change back into the right-hand lane, the truck spun out of control, fishtailing and spinning on and off the highway, eventually coming to a rest on the highway, Olsen said.

Three people were taken to hospital with minor injuries.


The accident was one of two on two near Three Valley Gap on the weekend.

On Saturday at around 10:30 p.m. a driver on the Three Valley Gap frontage road had both driver side tires of his car punctured and a big dent in the side of his car as the result of a fallen piece of metal debris from a transport truck, said RCMP.

No one was injured in the crash.

The tansport-truck was not located.
