Tow truck rolls over on Highway 6

Three people were injured when a tow rolled over on Highway 6 near Nakusp, B.C.

On August 24, three Nakusp locals riding in a tow truck were injured in a single-vehicle crash near Brouse Loop. The tow-truck rolled over and one of the occupants was pinned beneath the vehicle.

Nakusp fire fighters arrived on the scene and extricated the 60-year-old victim who was later flown to Kelowna hospital with serious injuries. The driver, aged 17, and other passenger, a man in his seventies,  sustained only minor injuries.


The names of those involved are not being released as the cause of the accident is still unknown and is being investigated. There has been no decision made yet as to whether there will be charges laid.


Correction: In the print version of the story, due to a typographical error the story read a “6-year-old victim” was extricated, and should have read “60-year-old victim.” We regret the error.
