Collision Slowing Traffic West of Elko

UPDATE: Delays are to be expected on Highway 3 near Elko, as officials describe the conditions as "terrible".

East Kootenay Traffic Services (EKTS) is reporting a two-vehicle collision between Galloway and Elko at approximately 3:50 pm Wednesday.

Just after that, a member of EKTS told Summit 107 that a semi-truck went into the ditch trying to avoid the collision.

At the time of publication, officers were still making their way to the scene, so few details have been officially confirmed.

A member of EKTS says the road is not fully closed, but drivers should expect delays for now.

They say the roads in the Elko area are "terrible" and that travel should be avoided for now if possible.

Drive BC has not reported on the collision at this time.
