“It’s a miracle no one was killed.”
That’s how Princeton RCMP Sgt. Rob Hughes described a collision that shut down Highway 3 just west of town Tuesday, May 17.
Three adults were travelling from Vancouver to Princeton, according to police.
Hughes said the trio was driving in a fully loaded motorhome, pulling a U-Haul trailer, when the brakes failed and the vehicle crossed into the opposite lane.
It came into collision with a tractor trailer.
The motorhome and the trailer were demolished.
“One person in the motorhome had minor injuries,” said Hughes.
The incident was reported at about 7 a.m., and Highway 3 was closed for approximately four hours.
