Cpl. Lanz of the Grand Forks RCMP reports that on Dec. 12 at about at 7:16 p.m., a motor vehicle collision was reported to the RCMP on Hwy. 3 near Eholt Road.

A 2008 Volkswagen Golf was traveling eastbound and lost control on the curve, which caused the car to go into a spin. The driver, a 39-year-old female from Vancouver, crossed the centre line where a KW tractor-trailer was traveling west. The semi hit the rear of the VW Golf.

Extensive damage was done to the car, but there were only minor injuries to the driver. Both drivers were wearing seat belts. Police report the roads were icy at the time of the accident.
