At least half a dozen transport trucks were stuck on Vernon’s hospital hill Dec. 20.
The semi trucks were spinning their wheels and blocking southbound lanes on the stretch of Highway 97, closing the road.
RCMP were on scene helping drivers get chained up.
One witness called it “an absolute mess.”
A car also left the highway just south of town early Tuesday morning, landing on its side in the ditch. No major injuries were reported.
Vernon North Okanagan RCMP report many roadways are slick.
