One person is dead after a two vehicle collision near Fort St, James on the morning of Dec. 7.

Fort St. James RCMP were called to the scene on Tachie Road, about 13 km west of Highway 27, just before 8 a.m.

According to Police, a loaded logging truck was travelling east bound on Tachie Road when a 2007 Chevrolet Impala, travelling west, collided with the truck sending both vehicles off the road.

The 28 year old female driver of the Impala died at the scene and a 41 year old female was taken by ambulance to Stuart Lake Hospital where she was treated and is expected to recover.

The driver of the truck was uninjured.

Both vehicles were extensively damaged and the logging truck lost its load. The road was closed for several of hours.

Police confirm that extremely icy conditions appear to be a contributing factor.

No names have been released.
