Two vehicle collision at Nancy Green Junction near Rossland
On Friday, June 7, at 9:12 a.m., a frontline Trail and Greater District RCMP officer responded to a collision between two vehicle at the Nancy Green Junction or the intersection of Hwy 3 and Hwy 3B near Rossland, said Trail RCMP Sgt. Mike Wicentowich.
A 73-year-old Penticton woman was driving a 2013 Honda Civic when she allegedly turned left from the stop sign on Hwy 3B into the path of a 31-year-old Alberta woman driving a 2018 Chevrolet Malibu travelling near 100km/h straight ahead on Hwy 3. The two vehicles struck each other, resulting in considerable damage to the vehicle. The 31-year-old Alberta woman received a minor injury to her knee. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
The 73-year-old Penticton woman was issued a $109 fine for making an improper turn at an intersection contrary to Section 165(5) of the BC Motor Vehicle Act.
“This is a good reminder that traffic significantly increases in our area in the summertime and to remain vigilant while driving. Drivers can be safer on the road by practicing defensive driving, maintaining proper speeds, and staying distraction free. Our officers are out and about conducting traffic enforcement all summer long,” says Wicentowich.
