Collision on Highway 1 near the BC-Alberta Border

Golden, BC: On September 6, 2016 the Golden-Field RCMP responded to a single vehicle collision involving a semi on Highway 1 near the BC-Alberta border.


Investigation shows that the westbound semi began to leave the roadway striking several cement barricades, says Cst. Spencer LAINCHBURY with the Golden-Field RCMP. Although the vehicle got stuck on the barricades, they prevented the vehicle from going down a steep embankment.

Highway 1 westbound was reduced to one-lane for several hours to allow for emergency services to respond and the vehicle to be removed.

No charges are expected in relation to the collision.
