Shortly after 5pm on Wednesday, August 8, Quesnel RCMP were called to the scene of a three vehicle collision on Highway 97 south, approximately 20 kms north of McLeese Lake.
Investigation determined that a semi-truck and trailer travelling southbound crossed the centre line and collided with a northbound vehicle and causing it to hit another northbound vehicle. All three vehicles ended up in the northbound ditch.
The occupants of all three vehicles were wearing their seatbelts and no one sustained significant injuries.
Police issued a violation ticket under the Motor Vehicle Act to the driver of the semi truck.
"This is a classic example of the life saving role seatbelts play in major collisions,'" explained Constable Krista Vrolyk, media spokesperson for the Quesnel RCMP. "There is no doubt that the use of seatbelts was key in preventing injuries in this crash."
