No one was seriously injured after a pile-up on Sunday night on Highway 16, 10 km east of New Hazelton.

“Two semis stuck on the hill, a vehicle slid into one semi, another vehicle slid into that vehicle, then a semi hit the trailer of a semi,” she said.

The road was closed for a few hours for clean-up. She is blaming slippery conditions for the crash.
