Two-vehicle collision results in fatality

The RCMP were at the scene of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 16 and the South Frontage Road in McBride last week.

The McBride RCMP and the Prince George Regional Provincial Traffic Services Unit were at the scene of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 16 and the South Frontage Road in McBride last week.

A  70 year-old male was travelling westbound on Highway 16, through McBride, in a small Toyota passenger vehicle.  He turned left from Highway 16 onto the South Frontage Road, into the path of an eastbound Chevrolet Silverado, with three occupants.

The vehicles collided in the eastbound lane in a perpendicular or “T-bone” type collision.  The driver of the Toyota was transported from the scene.  He has since been pronounced deceased.   One of the occupants of the Chevrolet pick-up truck is local, while the other two are not.

Weather conditions, while slippery do not appear to be a factor in the collision.  Investigators are in the infancy of the investigation and have not yet established the cause of the crash.  The investigation will continue in an attempt to establish if there was a reason for the driver to turn left when he did.

The Prince George Regional Provincial Traffic Servcies are investigating this crash with the assistance of the McBride RCMP Detachment and the BC Coroner’s Service.

Highway 16 is not closed to traffic.  The highway remains open at this time, to alternating traffic.  It is reported traffic is light and has not been affected by this collision scene.

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash or may have any information for the police in this investigation are asked to call the Prince George Regional Provincial Traffic Services Unit at: (250) 649-4004.
