Speed possible factor in accident on Highway 29


Constable Bernie of the Hudson’s Hope RCMP says police are alleging that speed may have been a factor in the accident, although, witnesses say they don’t believe the truck was going too fast.

“Some witnesses did say it wasn’t going really fast or anything; but as the truck, and maybe the way the load was, it could have been too fast for the truck,” Constable Bernie said.

The driver of the truck was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
