Weather a Factor in Crash
Quesnel, B.C. – Police believe heavy rain was a factor in a crash involving a horse trailer on Highway 97 yesterday 20 km north of Quesnel.
“A south bound vehicle towing a horse trailer, lost control in heavy train, causing the horse trailer carrying two horses to overturn,” says North District Corporal Dave Tyreman. “One of the horses succumbed to the injuries in the crash while the other was transported to a veterinary clinic for treatment.”
He says the crash closed the highway for a short time but says no one else suffered any injuries
Tyreman adds neither speed nor alcohol were considered factors in the collision and says it’s unlikely any charges will laid.
