UPDATE: Minor injuries incurred in Trans-Canada collision near Revelstoke

The Trans-Canada Highway has re-opened through Revelstoke following a crash Thursday morning.

The driver of a car miraculously escaped injuries after colliding with a tractor-trailer unit on the Trans-Canada Highway through Revelstoke on Thursday morning, RCMP say.

“To see the vehicle, you would not think a person would get out with minor injuries,” said Sgt. Hall of the Revelstoke RCMP.

The collision happened when the westbound Ford Taurus spun out of control and broadsided the semi on the Trans-Canada Highway near Alpine Lane at around 8:15 a.m. Thursday morning.

Hall said that evidence from tire marks indicates the Ford caught the shoulder of the highway, causing him to spin out the control into the semi.

Both the semi and the Ford wound up in the westbound ditch, facing eastbound.

Two passengers of the Ford were able to get out the vehicle but the driver was trapped inside. He was extracted from the vehicle by Revelstoke Highway Rescue and treated for minor injuries by paramedics.

The driver of the semi also received minor injuries in the crash.

The crash closed the highway for about two hours.
