SALMON ARM, B.C. — A serious head-on car crash just before 8 this morning has closed Highway 1, one kilometre west of Salmon Arm.

BC Emergency Health Services sent a Medevac helicopter to the scene and report at least one serious injury.

A detour is in effect during the investigation.

Highway 1 is also closed in both directions about 5 KM east of Golden because of a vehicle incident there as well.

A check with Drive BC.ca has not given a time of re-opening. Detours are in place.
