Heavy snow and slippery road conditions caused a semi-trailer rollover near Sparwood Tuesday (April 19) morning, according to the Elk Valley RCMP.
The sole driver of the semi-trailer was not injured, nor were any other people or vehicles hurt or damaged.
“On April 19, 2022 at approximately 6:15 a.m., Elk Valley RCMPolice responded to a semi-trailer roll over that had jack knifed across Highway 3, just North of Sparwood, B.C.,” the release says.
“The main cause of the incident was due to the heavy snow and very icy/oily road conditions.”
The Sparwood Fire Department and BC Emergency Health Services (EHS) were on scene.
“The highway was restricted to one lane travel only for a few hours until the semi-trailer was safely removed from its location.”
“Elk Valley RCMPolice would like to thank the Fire Department, EHS and BC Flaggers for the service in controlling and maintaining the site.”
