UPDATE: Hwy 1 reopened after incident west of Sicamous

(UPDATE @ 6:38 a.m. on May 26): Hwy 1 has been cleared following a vehicle incident on Saturday night.

(Original story @ 9:57 p.m. on May 25): A vehicle incident that has occurred between Salmon Arm and Sicamous has closed down Hwy 1 on Saturday night.

Drive BC says that the highway has been closed 8-km west of Sicamous and an assessment is in progress.
