Alternating Traffic Moving Through Fort Fraser
Prince George, B.C. – Highway 16 west at Fort Fraser is now partially open to vehicular traffic
Single-lane, alternating traffic is moving through the area at Telegraph Road which was the scene of a fatal accident involving one car just after 2:30 this morning.
Passenger vehicles were able to detour around the accident site but larger vehicles such as transport trucks had to either get turned around and leave the area or have been backed up in both directions for the past 12 hours. It will take a considerable amount of time to move the backlog.
RCMP Sgt Al Steinhauser says Hydro crews are now replacing the power pole which was hit and significantly damaged by the car. He says it will be at least a few more hours before Highway 16 at Fort Fraser is fully open.
The male passenger in the car was killed on impact while the driver suffered serious injuries. It’s believed speed and alcohol were involved.
