Coal truck hits the ditch near Chetwynd

No one was seriously injured after a coal truck lost control on Highway 29.

The Chetwynd RCMP were called to a collision on Highway 29 South on Friday at 2:15 p.m., located approximately 42km south of Chetwynd. A coal truck was traveling south bound on Highway 29 and lost control and collided with a car that was traveling north bound.

The collision was a result of the coal truck sliding down a steep hill into oncoming traffic and striking the passenger vehicle. The coal truck along with the small car both entered the north bound ditch.

The male driver and lone occupant of the car sustained minor injuries and was taken to the Chetwynd Hospital. The male driver of the coal truck wasn’t injured.

The RCMP believe road conditions were a major factor in the incident, but are still investigating the collision.
