Serious injury collision south of Marysville
At approximately 10:55 a.m., members of the Kimberley RCMP and the Southeast District Traffic Services Unit responded to a motor vehicle collision on Hwy 95A, just south of Marysville between the north and south entrances of Stirton Road. BC Ambulance Services and the Kimberley Fire Department also attended the scene.
A female was transported to East Kootenay Regional Hospital with serious injuries. The highway is currently closed to allow police to complete a thorough investigation of the scene and a Traffic Reconstructionist has been requested.
Mainroads has sanded and salted Stirton Road and traffic is now being re-directed along it until the highway reopens.
Members of the public are encouraged to check with DriveBC for highway updates.
“The current rain on top of last night’s snow has created some treacherous driving conditions. Police are advising motorists to drive with caution and to only travel if absolutely necessary,” said Cpl. Kate Bamber of Kimberley RCMP.
