On August 27, 2023 at approximately 9:30 a.m., Creston RCMP attended a serious motor vehicle collision on Highway 3, east of Creston.

An SUV allegedly crossed the centre line into oncoming traffic and struck a pickup truck.
The highway was shut down for multiple hours for the police investigation and to provide aid to the parties. A collision reconstructionist attended the scene to assist.

The occupants in both vehicles suffered significant injuries and were transported to hospital by BC Ambulance Service.

Police believe alcohol and speed were contributing factors. The collision is still under investigation by the Creston RCMP.

The highway is now open. Creston RCMP would like to thank Creston Fire Rescue, BC Ambulance Service, and the other motorists who aided at the scene.
