Three Valley Gap accident includes an ambulance

What began as a single-vehicle accident at Three Valley Gap turned into a multi-vehicle crack-up that included an ambulance on Thursday.

“A westbound semi truck lost control and ended up on its passenger side in the westbound shoulder of the Trans-Canada Highway,” Sgt Kim Hall said in a statement. “The driver was transported by EMS to Queen Victoria Hospital with minor injuries. A passenger vehicle had pulled off onto the frontage road, prior to the crash, and was hit by the semi’s trailer as it came down the embankment. A father and his two young children were not injured but were transported by RCMP to QVH as a precaution.”

She said a westbound BC Ambulance enroute to another motor vehicle incident was on scene and was struck by a second westbound semi. One paramedic suffered minor injuries and was transported to

hospital. The truck driver was also transported to QVH with minor injuries.
