“It’s a miracle no one was killed,’ says Princeton RCMP

Motorhome pulling trailer experienced brake failure before collision

“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.
