A single vehicle crash near Mayo on July 30 resulted in two Pelly Crossing residents being airlifted to Whitehorse General Hospital.

The female driver and passenger, both 20 years old, were travelling westbound on the Silver Trail Highway and lost control of the vehicle, a small Chevrolet S10 pickup.

The truck rolled over several times into the ditch before coming to rest on the passenger side of the vehicle, according to an RCMP news release.

At least one of the vehicle occupants was thrown from the truck as it rolled.

Both occupants were transported to the Mayo Health Centre by ambulance and later airlifted to Whitehorse for medical treatment.

Their injuries were not considered to be life-threatening, the release said.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, according to Const. Matt Beckett of the Mayo RCMP detachment.
