On September 7 at approximately 6:30 p.m., members of the Golden-Field RCMP, BC Ambulance and Field Fire- Rescue responded to a collision on Highway 1 approximately 20 kilometres west of Field, BC.

Several witnesses indicated that an eastbound car was passing another eastbound vehicle when it sideswiped a westbound truck and travel trailer before going in to the ditch and rolling. The two occupants from the car, both from Calgary, AB were assessed by paramedics on scene and released with no reported injuries.

The incident caused extensive delays for long weekend travelers as the highway was reduced to one lane alternating traffic for over an hour while emergency service crews cleared the scene.
