Abbotsford driver injured in accident, Grand Forks RCMP recommend driving to conditions

A 48-year-old driver from Abbotsford, B.C. suffered back and shoulder injuries in an accident on Highway 3.

There was a roll-over collision on Highway 3 and Billings Road on Dec. 9 at 3:39 p.m.

The vehicle rolled over and went down a steep embankment across the Trans Canada Trail.

The 48-year-old driver from Abbotsford, B.C. was taken to Boundary Hospital with what appears to be minor injuries to his back and shoulder.

There is around $25,000 damage to the vehcile, a truck.

Grand Forks RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison warns drivers to slow down and watch road conditions.

“This is usually the worst time of the year for accidents on the highway because of the transition from generally dry and clear highways to snow and ice and slush,” he said. “It’s this transition period in the first month that we start getting ugly conditions on the road that we see the most accidents.” After around a month of these wet conditions, drivers adjust to the changes and there are fewer accidents, he added. “No matter what the posted speed limit, if it’s really bad, driver under the speed limit,” he said.

“If you are going under the posted speed limit and traffic builds up, be courteous to pull over and allow traffic to go through.”
