Two injured after crash in Rogers Pass

Two people were taken to hospital after a pair of pick-up trucks collided on the Trans-Canada Highway in Rogers Pass on Tuesday afternoon.

The crash happened at around 4:15 p.m. when a westbound truck collided with an eastbound truck that was hauling a trailer.

Both drivers were taken to Queen Victoria Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, through drugs and alcohol have been ruled out as contributing factors.

The crash closed the highway between Revelstoke and Golden for several hours.
