The Kamloops RCMP Detachment is investigating a multi-vehicle collision that has sadly resulted in the death of one person.

On Nov. 29, 2023, around 3 p.m., emergency responders were called to the intersection of McGill Road and University Drive, after a Dodge Ram truck collided with several small trees before striking a Volkswagen that was stopped at a red light, creating secondary crashes with four other vehicles.

All three of the occupants in the Volkswagen were taken to hospital; one was sadly declared deceased and the other two received serious injuries, the extent of which are unknown. Two occupants in a Jeep were also transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Our hearts are broken for the victims and their families involved in this terrible tragedy, said Superintendent Jeff Pelley, Kamloops RCMP Detachment’s Officer in Charge. The three young adults in the Volkswagen were all members of the community in their 20s, and the loss is sure to have far reaching impacts as we struggle to understand what happened and advance the active investigation as a priority.

The Kamloops RCMP Municipal Traffic Unit has conduct of the investigation with the assistance of the Southeast District Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service. Anyone with video, dash camera footage, or information related to this incident that has not yet been shared with the police, is asked to please contact the Kamloops Detachment as soon as possible at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2023-42279.
