Motor vehicle accident sends two to hospital
Police are investigating after a multiple vehicle crash in Lake Country sent two men to hospital Monday night.
Lake Country RCMP were called at 10:15 p.m. to a report of a two-vehicle crash on Highway 97 near Beaver Lake Road.
Witnesses told police a white Cadillac was seen travelling northbound on the highway at a high rate of speed just before the crash.
“The Cadillac lost control on a curve and crossed into the oncoming lanes where it impacted a Chevrolet Silverado hauling a trailer,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Kris Clark.
The two occupants of the Cadillac were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries with the passenger apparently suffering more serious injuries than the driver.
An RCMP collision reconstructionist conducted a detailed scene analysis of the crash to determine the causal factors.
That assessment is not yet complete but speed is believed to be a contributing factor in the crash while alcohol has been ruled out.
A 24-year-old Alberta man could face potential dangerous driving charges pending further investigation.
