RCMP Report: One injured in single vehicle MVI

Police were kept busy over the weekend with a single vehicle accident and another avalanche report.

One injured in collision

On Feb. 8 at 11:01 pm, the Golden RCMP received a report of a single vehicle collision on Hwy. 1 near Ten Mile Hill, east of Golden. Golden RCMP responded along with BC Ambulance, and one female was transported to the Golden Hospital with what is believed to be minor injuries resulting from the collision.

Westbound traffic was reduced to one lane for approximately one hour while the vehicle was removed from the highway.

One male in hospital after Avalanche

On Feb. 8, police received a report of an avalanche near KHMR. Two males from Golden were apparently skiing out-of-bounds when they allegedly caused and were caught in the avalanche. Search and Rescue extracted the men from the area and one individual was taken to Cranbrook hospital with serious but non life-threatening injuries.

“We would ask that those planning on going into the back country be aware of the avalanche and weather conditions,” said Cst. Spencer Lainchbury in a statement.
