Semi Driver Ticketed After Crash Snarls Traffic

A rolled semi was the cause of a Wednesday night delay on Highway One, near Three Valley Gap.

Police say that it was around 8:30 when a Western Star tractor-trailer rolled on its side, blocking both lanes.

The driver and passenger were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

That accident left the Highway closed for three hours, and Police say that the driver was ticketed.

Revelstoke RCMP say that there's been 30 accidents in their coverage area since September 1st, and note that speed has been a primary factor.
