File # 2301-2023-6210

 In the early evening on December 10, 2023, BCHP – Nelson and Midway RCMP responded to a collision involving a Chevrolet Tracker and a Subaru Outback on Highway 3 east of Greenwood.

The initial investigation has determined that the driver of the Chevrolet Tracker lost control on icy roads and crossed over the center line into the path of an oncoming Subaru Outback. Tragically the passenger of the Chevrolet Tracker, a 62-year-old woman from Grand Forks, passed away in hospital several hours later. The driver of that vehicle was also transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The occupants of the other vehicle were not seriously injured. Road conditions were reportedly poor; however, all avenues of investigation are being considered at this early stage.

BC Highway Patrol is asking for anyone who may have witnessed this crash, or who may have dashcam video to contact BCHP Nelson at 250-354-5180 and refer to file number 2023-6210.
