Five Vehicle Collision Leaves Highway One At A Stand Still

Revelstoke RCMP say that a five vehicle pile-up is to blame for today's lengthy closure of Highway One.

Police say that it was about 1AM when two commercial vehicles collided on Highway One just West of Revelstoke.

A Tuesday release says that two more commercial vehicles and a passenger vehicle also crashed at that scene.

Two adult males and one female were taken from the scene with non-life threatening injuries.

Police say that Highway conditions were icy and snowy at the time.

A traffic analyst spent the morning on the scene of that accident.

That pile-up left debris strewn across the Highway, but Police say that there's no environmental concerns.

The Highway had not re-opened by EzRock's deadline, but the last update stated that traffic may be moving again by 3PM.
