The fire department’s river rescue boat was deployed and a police officer got to swim in the river this afternoon after an accident at around 2:45 p.m.

Trail RCMP top cop Sgt. Darren Oelke said it all stemmed from a two-vehicle MVI between Birchbank and Genelle.

“There was a small van heading northbound and a larger van heading south,” Oelke explained. “The northbound vehicle crossed over (the centre line), essentially sideswiping the other vehicle, and sending both vans off the road.”
