A trucker who was passed while approaching a blind curve on Highway 3 earlier this week saw the other driver pulled over by police 21 minutes after the incident.

The action was captured by a dash cam and the video was uploaded to YouTube by TruckBC.

“RCMP Impressive Response to Highway 3 Dangerous Crossing Report” was posted on December 23 and the timestamp of the video shows the same day at 1:13 p.m.

Deep in a valley on Highway 3 east of Manning Park, the truck is seen in the video turning 180 degrees around a right-hand bend before a cube truck swerves past a bend blind approach. We hear the trucker honk as the van passes.

A caption to the video said she was immediately reported to the RCMP. The first call having fallen, the truck driver stopped at the East Gate Esso to provide more information.

The video, which is nearly two minutes long, was recorded in a single shot, but it travels several miles without incident.

A later caption states that at 1:34 p.m., “This cube van pulled up.”

The trucker was impressed with the police response within 21 minutes. He can then be seen stopping in front of the cube van and the police car to give a statement to the officer.

RCMP did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the incident.
