At least three workers from Teck Coal Ltd.’s Coal Mountain Operations were injured in a morning bus crash not far from the mine’s front gate (approximately 30 kilometres southeast of Sparwood) on December 10. “A bus transporting employees from our Coal Mountain Operations back to town with 12 passengers on board slid off the public road this morning,” reported Nic Milligan, Teck’s Manager, Community and Aboriginal Affairs.

“Emergency response crews responded immediately; all passengers have been transported to the hospital for assessment and at this time three people are believed to have non-life threatening injuries,” Milligan said, adding, “All relevant authorities have been notified and we will be conducting a full review of this incident.”

The Coal Mountain coach bus that crashed was the B.C. bus taking workers home at 7 a.m.
