It Happened at Herrling
Reader's first-hand experience of the multi-vehicle crash on Hwy 1
Submitted by Beky Coe
was the "pedestrian" that got hit. I was not from the car that spun out of control and crashed in the fast lane. I was a driver on my way home from Thanksgiving with family in Kamloops that passed "that" vehicle and saw that it was in the fast lane, it was either black or dark blue, with no headlights nothing indicating that it was there, and it was dark with torrential downpour of rain.
Someone was going to hit it and a lot of people could have gotten hurt if no one indicated to oncoming traffic that it was there.
The only reason that I got hit was because two vehicles going the same speed came around the corner at the same time. The car in the fast lane pulled into the truck hauling a U-Haul trailer that was in the slow lane and that truck pulled into the shoulder and concrete barrier where I was standing.
It all happened so fast.
