Fatal Crash on Hwy 6

A teenager has died in a two-vehicle accident just east of Vernon.
RCMP say the crash happened on Highway 6 and the junction of the King Eddie Forest Service Road shortly after 6pm Monday, closing the road for about five hours. A detour was in place.  Few details have been released but first responders say the 18-year-old woman could not be saved.
R-C-M-P in the North Okanagan urged drivers to use extreme caution, saying road conditions were very poor at the time
