A tow-truck operator prepares to haul a tractor-trailer that drove off the Trans-Canada Highway Friday near the Enchanted Forest. The westbound semi crossed the centre line and struck an eastbound pickup truck. The two occupants of the semi were uninjured, while the driver in the pickup, a 65-year-old B.C. man, sustained minor injuries.  Snowy wet weather conditions have contributed to multiple motor-vehicle incidents on the highway since, resulting in temporary closures.
