Saturday Collision Claims Life Of 62 Year Old Local Man

RCMP with Traffic Services have released further details on a fatal Saturday accident between Salmon Arm and Canoe.

Police say that it was around Noon when a Southbound Toyota pick-up collided with a Northbound commercial vehicle on a straight stretch of Highway.

The driver of the pick-up was a 62 year old Salmon Arm man who passed away at the scene.

A release says that the commercial vehicle driver from Kamloops was hauling a full-load, and was not injured.

Trans-Canada East Traffic Services is still investigating, and will be assisting the Coroner's investigation as well.

That accident closed Highway One for several hours, and no further information is expected.
