A car was engulfed in flames late Tuesday night after a single-vehicle accident on the Trans-Canada Highway near the Peterson Creek Bridge.
They found a small white car which was fully engulfed in flames. Kamloops Fire Rescue personnel actioned the vehicle fire while ambulance attendants treated the lone male driver who had suffered minor injuries. The driver was transported to the Royal Inland Hospital for treatment.
For the safety of the passing motorists, the highway was closed in both lanes until the fire was extinguished. Sgt. Darren Michels said today (Jan. 11, 2017) there are currently no known witnesses and it’s not unclear what happened.
Anyone who observed the cause of this accident is requested to contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at (250) 828-3000.
