Area drivers were reminded that winter conditions apply once again to local roads when snow and gusty winds on Monday night caused problems for truckers on the Hwy 1 hill by the Ghost of Walhachin pullout.
Police were called out at 9:14 pm on Nov. 18 for a report of a jackknifed truck at the bottom of the hill. The trucker had righted his rig by the time police arrived, but there were four westbound transport trucks in total who were unable to make it up the hill due to very slippery conditions.
After an hour of rerouting traffic around them, the trucks were chained up and all made it up the hill without further incident.
The following morning at 7:24 am, police attended a single car accident on Hwy 1 by Venables Valley Rd. after a Honda Civic rolled off the icy highway, coming to rest on its wheels. The 29 year old Kamloops driver was uninjured.
