RCMP were called to a report of a logging truck driver in medical distress on the morning of Feb. 5.

RCMP, ambulance and Mount Milligan first aid attended a logging truck stopped on the Rainbow Forest Service Road, north of Fort St. James.

The driver had reportedly pulled off at around 18 km on the forest service road and was suffering from a possible heart attack or some sort of medical distress.

The male driver from Prince George had passed away at the scene before police arrived.

RCMP did not believe the death to be suspicious and referred the matter to the B.C. Coroner’s Service.
