Pileup causes traffic headaches on Alaska Highway this morning

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – An accident involving four pickups trucks caused some inconveniences for commuters northwest of Fort St. John this morning.

The pileup happened at around 6:45 a.m. on the Alaska Highway at the intersection with the 271 Road. According to Cst. Nancy Saggar with the Fort St. John RCMP, the four pickup trucks involved in the collision were all travelling northbound on the highway when they impacted one another. Saggar says that despite the four vehicles needing to be towed away, none of the vehicle’s occupants sustained any serious injuries in the crash. The highway saw delays this morning after it took tow truck crews roughly 30 minutes to clean up the accident scene.

While police have not determined the cause of the collision, Saggar added that investigators have ruled out alcohol or any other criminal actions as a factor in the crash, and that police strongly believe that this morning’s heavy fog played a significant role.
