A truck plunged more than 30 feet down an embankment off of Sherbiko Hill Monday afternoon.
As the sun started to set, roads around Castlegar became quite slippery and spots of ice were multiplying on Columbia Avenue.
The driver was not injured in the incident, and damage to the vehicle appears to be minimal.
Local RCMP officers have been cautioning drivers for weeks to slow down and make sure they are driving appropriately for road conditions.
“Our road contractors work hard to make the roads safe, but I cannot underscore the importance of driving to the conditions and always wear a seat belt,” said Sgt. Chad Badry in a statement after a serious accident Friday afternoon.
“Although the days are getting longer, we will experience winter conditions on our roads for some time yet.”
