Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement about a bus accident that claimed a student’s life and injured others:
Selkirk College students and staff were involved in a motor vehicle accident that occurred on Highway 3A between Castlegar and Nelson on Thursday afternoon, June 30.
On June 30, 2022, a Purolator courier van collided with a BC Transit bus on Highway 3A near Castlegar, British Columbia, leaving a 19-year-old student passenger in grave condition on life support.
The collision took place just after 4:30 p.m. when the BC Transit Bus headed eastbound on Highway 3A was sideswiped by an oncoming Purolator courier cube van.
The squeaky wheel will get the grease when it comes to wildfire risk reduction.
