Police were called to the scene of the crash, near Bernie Road west of Sicamous, at 7:45 p.m. The police investigation determined that the westbound semi failed to negotiate a corner and crossed the eastbound lanes before hitting the ditch and rolling onto its side.
The driver was trapped in the cab of the truck and had to be freed by a highway rescue unit; the driver suffered facial and shoulder injuries. The passenger, who was asleep in the sleeper of the vehicle at the time of the crash, suffered minor facial injuries.
Both occupants of the vehicle were transported to Shuswap Lake General Hospital to have their injuries cared for.
A semi-truck rollover disrupted traffic on the Trans-Canada Highway between Sicamous and Salmon Arm on the evening of May 25 and might do so again today as crews recover the truck.
