Morning Collision West Of Chase Leaves Truck On Fire

RCMP in Chase have provided details on a morning accident that caused a brief shutdown of Highway One.

Police say that it was around 5:45AM when a Westbound Civic and Eastbound logging truck struck sides about 4km's West of Chase.

The Civic rolled off the Highway into a field, while the logging truck hit the ditch and rolled on its side into a power pole.

The truck then caught on fire, with the Kamloops and Chase Fire Departments attending.

Police say that both drivers walked away from the collision, but were taken to hospital as a precaution.

Speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors, but the accident remains under investigation.
