Coroners Service investigates fatal ATV rollover crash south of Terrace

BC Coroners Service

The BC Coroners Service is investigating an ATV accident which claimed the life of a man south of Terrace.

The rollover crash happened late yesterday morning west of Beam Station Road, about one kilometre south of the Old Remo Road intersection.

The man was in his 70's -- but his name and hometown haven't been released.

The Coroners Service is in the early stages of its fact-finding investigation into the accident.

 

The service says over the past decade, the Northern Health region has recorded 33 ATV deaths,  which is the second highest total of any of BC's five health authority regions.

Only the Interior Health region -- at 59 -- had more.
