Critical injuries in weekend Highway 3 crash

Princeton RCMP still investigating

A Saskatchewan man was critically injured Saturday in a collision on Highway 3 near Taylor Mill Road.

And according to police, while black ice may have contributed to the crash, an investigation into charges in ongoing.

RCMP Corporal Chad Parsons said the accident occurred around noon, when a westbound Ford pick up truck crossed the centre line and collided with an oncoming vehicle, a Chevrolet Equinox.

Local fire departments and a highway rescue crew responded and extracted a 77-year-old passenger from the Equinox. The man is currently in critical condition at Kelowna Hospital, said Parsons.

The driver of the truck is a 21-year-old man from Washington.

Parsons said alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the crash.

That stretch of highway “is one of the areas we typically get black ice, just from the moisture content from the river settling on the road,” he said.
