Columbia Valley Pioneer staff

Local fire crews and RCMP responded to a motor vehicle incident that caused “significant injuries” to at least two people on Tuesday.

Columbia Valley RCMP Sgt. Ed deJong told the Pioneer that two people in a pickup truck suffered significant injuries during the incident on Highway 93/95 just outside Dry Gulch (between Radium Hot Springs and Invermere).

“I don’t have an update on the extent of the injuries at this time,” deJong said.

The Pioneer is awaiting further details on the circumstances.
