Princeton RCMP warn drivers of black ice

Be careful out there

Princeton RCMP are warning drivers to watch for black ice as it is suspected of causing three single vehicle accidents in the past week.

Two of the crashes occurred on Highway 3 east of Princeton on December 2, said Sergeant Barry Kennedy.

A 44-year-old woman from Summerland escaped injury when her Cadillac slid off the road, flipped over in the ditch and hit some rocks. The accident occurred at 7:30 a.m. about 18 km from town.

Two people from Surrey were travelling the same road at 5 p.m., about 5 km from town, when their Dodge Dakota slide across the highway and turned over in the ditch. There were no injuries.

A third accident occurred sometime before 1:20 am on December 3 on Highway 5A. Police on routine patrol came across a vehicle on its roof at the side of the road. When the 18-year-old driver, a Princeton man, was located he told police he hit ice and flipped over. He was not injured.
