Two people are in hospital following a collision on the Trans-Canada Highway west of Revelstoke early Thursday.

The crash happened when an eastbound jeep collided with a westbound pickup 16 kilometres west of Revelstoke, at around 12:15 a.m., RCMP say.

“It appears the eastbound jeep was out of his laneway and struck the westbound vehicle,” said Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky. “The vehicles spun and the pickup truck ended up down the embankment.”

There was one person in each vehicle and both were taken to hospital. The driver of the jeep was taken to Vernon, while the driver of the pickup was taken to Salmon Arm, then Kamloops, with multiple fractures and head trauma.

A traffic analyst was called to the scene, but the cause of the accident is not yet known.

The crash closed the highway for almost six hours.
