On Dec. 7 at 12:28 p.m., Grand Forks RCMP were called by B.C. Ambulance Services due to a single vehicle roll-over near Eholt Road and the Wilgress Lake rest area.

Police attended the scene and found a single vehicle on its roof in the eastbound ditch.

“The roads were extremely icy,” said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. “The vehicle was descending the hill when it hit the curb and the vehicle lost traction and they were unable to make the corner and went straight into ditch. They rolled and came to a rest upside down. Speed wasn’t a great factor, but road conditions were.”

The 55-year-old driver and 56-year-old passenger from Warfield, B.C. suffered minor injuries.
