File Number: 2012-2579

On December 17, 2012 at approximately 1:14 in the afternoon, the Chetwynd RCMP responded to a motor vehicle collision involving a pick up truck and a train approximately 17 kilometers north of Chetwynd on Highway 97 South. Police investigation is ongoing, however, it appears that the vehicle failed to yield for the passing train resulting in minor injury to both the driver and the passenger of the pick up. Both occupants were transported to the Chetwynd HOspital via ambulance, however, are expected to be released today. The pick up is a business owned vehicle, the driver and passenger are employees of the company, therefore, Worksafe BC will also be notified of the incident.
