TERRACE RCMP have reopened the highway where a two-vehicle crash took place earlier this morning.

The highway between the four-way stop and Old Lakelse Lake Road was closed around noon while police investigated a two-vehicle accident that saw two westbound vehicles, a small car and a pickup, go off the highway at about 11 a.m.

The truck headed down the embankment in the north ditch where it came to a stop.

The little car, a grey Hyundai, was rear-ended, forcing it into a light standard, said media relations officer Const. Angela Rabut this afternoon.

Both drivers, both female, had been taken to hospital for treatment of their injuries, which were minor, said Rabut.

The pickup will be taken in for a mechanical inspection, she said.

Several witnesses were interviewed at the scene.

Before the crash, a call had come in to police of an erratic driver passing on the right, which turns out to have been the same truck.

“It was driving fast and had passed on the right,” said Rabut.

Police continue to investigate.
