No one was seriously injured in a two-vehicle collision in south Castlegar on Tuesday afternoon.
Police, fire and ambulance were called to the scene of the crash, which occurred at about 3 p.m. near the junction of Columbia Avenue and 32nd Street.
Officials say the accident occurred when a car heading southbound struck an SUV coming into Castlegar.
The crash caused the SUV to strike a utility pole along the highway.
Traffic was reduced to single-lane alternating while emergency crews cleared the scene.
“We’re just making sure the overhead wires and power pole is safe, and we have a fire truck on hand in case we need it,” said Castlegar fire Chief Sam Lattanzio.
FortisBC was also called in to check the integrity of the utility pole.
There’s no word on what caused the accident. Police are continuing to investigate.
