Truck was hanging over embankment on Highway 3

Accident involving a tractor trailer had closed Highway 3 for most of the day

An accident on Highway 3 on the weekend left a truck in a precarious position.

On Nov. 24, at 720 a.m., the Osoyoos RCMP responded to a single vehicle collision on Highway 3 near Richter Pass.

Sgt. Jason Bayda said a tractor trailer was heading east bound on Highway 3 when it lost control on the icy highway and drove through the no post barrier, coming to rest hanging over the embankment.

“The driver and sole occupant was taken to hospital for precautionary reasons but appeared uninjured,” said Bayda, in a news release.

Highway 3 was closed for several hours while the vehicle was recovered from the embankment and was reopened around 230 p.m.
