Everyone walked away with no injuries from a three-vehicle collision on Hwy 37 south of Williams Creek shortly after 10 p.m. July 30, reported Terrace RCMP July 31.

Aggressive driving was the cause of the collision, said police.

"It really is unbelievable that nobody got hurt. The potential was there for a whole lot worse. Drivers need to slow down, respect others using the road, and focus on getting to their destination safely," says Cpl. Phil Crack, West Pacific Region Traffic Services, also known as the highway patrol.

A silver 2003 Jeep Liberty being driven by a 25-year-old man made an attempt to pass a brown 2009 Honda Civic on a blind corner, double solid line, and in a no passing zone, said police.

The Jeep collided head-on with a brown 2012 Peterbilt tanker truck that was approaching in the opposite lane, continued police.

The Jeep went into a spin and struck the Honda it was trying to pass.
