No injuries after Mile 68 accident


No one has been hurt after a near head-on collision at Mile 68 of the Alaska Highway.

Fort St. John RCMP say two vehicles narrowly avoided a head-on collision but side swiped each other at 7 a.m. Tuesday morning. The accident caused minor delays since one lane of traffic had to be closed.

While two trucks were still at the scene, two more vehicles were involved in another accident. A semi tractor trailer was stopped in the southbound lane waiting for the wreckage to be cleared when it was rear ended by a logging truck.

The second accident caused a further delay but the road was open to all traffic by 9:30 a.m.

Police say poor weather was the main cause of both accidents.
