Modular home blocks Highway 3B

Traffic was blocked along Highway 3B Wednesday night when a semi pulling a modular home tipped over into another truck traveling the opposite direction.

The modular home ended up on its side about 2 kilometres east of the Paulson Bridge.

Thankfully, there were no major injuries to the B.C. residents from out of town involved in the crash, but both lanes were blocked off during an extensive cleanup that was quite “costly,” according to Trail Sgt. Rob Hawton.

Tuesday morning, a single-vehicle accident occurred not far from this location on Highway 3 about 15 km east of Christina Lake, according to Grand Forks RCMP.

A GMC Jimmy towing a boat flipped on its roof and sent the boat sailing up the road.

A 65-year-old man from Robson was taken by ambulance to the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital while a 50-year-old woman and 48-year-old man (both from Castlegar) were taken by ambulance to Boundary Hospital and were then airlifted to Kelowna.

Hawton is reminding drivers to get their winter tires on right away and watch for black ice and slippery conditions.
