Two-vehicle collision near Numa Falls in KNP on snowy roads

Kootenay National Park road conditions to blame

On Sunday, October 22nd at about 11 a.m., Columbia Valley RCMP received a complaint surrounding a two vehicle collision on Highway 93 near Numa Falls in the Kootenay National Park. It was determined that a blue Toyota Tacoma had been driving westbound on snow covered roads when it began to lose control and drove into the eastbound lane where it struck a 2018 Dodge Durango before coming to rest in the eastbound ditch. The occupants suffered minor injuries and were subsequently transported to the Invermere and Banff hospitals by the Ambulance Service. Witnesses reported that they were following the Toyota Tacoma and that it was driving at a reasonable speed. It was snowing heavily and roads were slippery at the time of the collision. The Tacoma was equipped with mud and snow tires but was only in two wheel drive at the time of the collision. Witness reports and investigator observation dictated that road conditions were extremely poor in the area where the collision occurred and contributed to the collision; therefore, no violation tickets were issued.
