Emergency crews responded to a tractor trailer overturned on Highway 97 south of Quesnel where a man was trapped inside.

On July 15, 2022 shortly after 1:00 a.m. the Quesnel RCMP along with BC Highway Patrol, BC Ambulance, North Cariboo Highway Rescue and Kersley Volunteer Fire Department, responded to a tractor trailer that had overturned in the northbound ditch of Highway 97 near Freeman Road, south of Quesnel. A 53-year-old man was trapped in the overturned vehicle. Highway 97 was closed in both directions while crews worked to free the man. EMCON attended to assist with traffic control. After a coordinated extraction the man was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and the road was re-opened shortly after 4:00 a.m.

Crews from the various emergency services and other agencies worked together as a team to save the life of the driver, says Sgt. Clay Kronebusch. Thanks for all the hard work and assistance from those involved.
