On Wednesday, September 28, 2022, Castlegar RCMP were notified of a fatal crash in Pass Creek, BC.

When a man failed to return after a social outing the previous evening, his friends returned to Norns Creek, Ladybird forest service road in Pass Creek to look for him.

Tire tracks were seen over a 150-foot embankment. Upon closer examination, they discovered an extensively damaged Jeep in a stream at the bottom of the hill.

Emergency services were immediately contacted. Castlegar RCMP, BC Coroner Service, and Castlegar Search and Rescue attended where they located an adult man deceased.

The 43-year-old Pass Creek resident appeared to have succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash. Evidence at the scene suggest that the Jeep rolled multiple times before coming to rest in the stream. The driver and lone occupant was ejected from the vehicle.

Castlegar RCMP are continuing to assist the BC Coroner Service with the investigation to determine contributing factors in the crash and are asking anyone with information to call the police.

If you have any information about this contact the Castlegar RCMP at (250)365-7721.
