Traffic is stopped somewhere between Wolfe Road and Ryall Road

UPDATE (12:45 p.m.): On Nov. 20, at approximately 11:25 a.m., 100 Mile House RCMP and RCMP Central Cariboo Traffic Services attended to a single motor vehicle collision along the 6300 block of Horse Lake Road.

Initial reports indicate that two people had been ejected from the vehicle after going off the roadway.

Currently, 100 Mile Fire Rescue and BC Ambulance are on the scene as it remains under investigation. Travel along Horse Lake Road in that area is blocked along east and west routes.

The roadway is expected to be blocked off for another hour while RCMP completes their initial investigation and then Horse Lake Road is expected to be re-opened to regular traffic.
