Two women are in hospital after a Monday afternoon vehicle accident in an otherwise quiet May long weekend for police.
One woman drove an SUV and the other a pickup when they collided at about 4:45 p.m. at the intersection of Summit Drive and Hugh Allan Drive on Victoria Day.
Both the injured were lone drivers.
They were quickly removed from their vehicles and transported to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
"They both seemed in fair shape," said RCMP Const. Rose Dunsmore on scene. "But only time will tell."
Other than the collision, police accounts paint a picture of a quiet Victoria Day long weekend.
"As far as weekend traffic, we haven't had anything significant that I'm aware of," said RCMP Sgt. Dave Prentice early Monday evening.
"It's often (a weekend) we wait with baited breath to be over because people are in a rush to get to camping spots, and towing trailers and boats for the first time of the year. It sometimes is a recipe for accidents. But knock on wood, we're doing OK so far this weekend."
He added that the cool, wet weather could have contributed to the chaotic-free holiday as people decided to decamp throughout the day rather than in a rush with hundreds of other drivers.
The Kamloops RCMP launched summer safe driving initiative on Friday, posting checkpoints at major intersections. Results from the first weekend of the program were not available at press time.
