A single-vehicle crash that caused backups near Swan Lake Thursday morning remains under investigation.
RCMP were called to the 7000 block of Highway 97 for a truck that had gone off road at 6 a.m. May 6.
“Frontline officers attended the location, and after speaking with the driver and witnesses, determined the vehicle, which was northbound at the time, had crossed the southbound lane, drove into the ditch and across the railroad tracks, eventually coming to a stop in a field,” Const. Chris Terleski said.
The driver was transported from the scene with what are believed to be minor injuries. Police are continuing to investigate the cause of the collision.
Southbound traffic was reduced to single lane while tow trucks retrieved the pickup, near Swan Lake Market and Garden.
