A mechanical issue appears to be to blame for causing a gravel truck to cross the centre line.

RCMP say there were only minor injuries in a collision on Highway 3 west of Rock Creek on Tuesday afternoon involving a gravel truck.

The gravel truck, driven by a 62-year-old Castlegar man, was eastbound when it crossed the centre line and struck a westbound pick-up truck driven by a 74-year-old man from Kaleden.
