No injuries in logging truck crash
On February 26, at 11:40 a.m., Columbia Valley RCMP and East Kootenay Traffic Services responded to single vehicle collision on Highway 93 just north of Kootenay Crossing. A loaded logging truck was southbound on Highway 93 when the driver failed to negotiate a curve and struck a concrete barrier, which resulted in the driver losing part of his load and coming to rest in a ditch. Traffic was stopped for a period of time while crews removed the truck and trailer. The driver was not injured in this incident.
