Cranbrook Search and Rescue (SAR) and their Road Rescue Division responded to two motor vehicle collisions Sunday morning as a result of black ice.
The first call came in at 10:02 am as Search and Rescue crews responded to the single-vehicle collision on Highway 3/95 near Moyie Lake.
“The single occupant of this vehicle lost control when they hit black ice on the highway,” confirmed Cranbrook SAR. “No Injuries were reported.”
Approximately 30 minutes later, RCMP dispatched Cranbrook SAR to another single-vehicle accident, about 300 metres south of the first collision.
Responding to the scene, Cranbrook SAR once again helped the driver, although they were taken to the hospital.
“The single occupant of the second accident was taken to East Kootenay Regional Hospital with undetermined injuries.”
The status of the driver involved in the second collision is unknown at this time.
