Two people were taken to Vernon hospital after an incident at a site well known for its crashes.
RCMP say a vehicle was attempting to make a left hand turn from Bernie Road by the landfill onto Highway 97 when it collided with a south bound vehicle.
Cst. Kelly Brett says both vehicles sustained significant damage and had air bag deployments.
The drivers, who were both alone in their vehicles, suffered what appeared to be minor injuries.
“Historically this particular section of Highway 97 can be dangerous as there is a hill that crests on either side of Bernie Road, making the left hand turn north bound particularly risky,” says Brett. “It is fortunate that there were no serious injuries during this collision and motorists are reminded to take caution when entering onto a Highway from a non-controlled intersection.”
A 37 year old Vernon man may face potential charges under the Motor Vehicle Act as the investigation continues.
