A person is sadly deceased, following a single-vehicle collision near Heffley Creek on Todd Mountain Road.
On Wednesday Nov. 8, 2023, just before 1 p.m., police received a report of a truck crash down a steep embankment, which had been there for a few days. Kamloops city and Tk’emlúps Rural detachment officers attended the area. A deceased male was located nearby, who is believed to have been the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle.
Due to the placement of the collision scene, a section of the roadway was temporarily closed during the late afternoon while police, the coroner, and Kamloops Search and Rescue worked to retrieve the victim from the steep terrain, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP Detachment spokesperson.
Police and the BC Coroners Service are conducting concurrent investigations. At this time, no criminality is suspected. Anyone who witnessed or has information that may be related, is asked to please contact the Tk’emlúps Rural RCMP Detachment at 250-314-1800.
