The Vernon North Okanagan RCMP is investigating a fatal ATV collision that occurred last night near Lumby.

On Tuesday, July 25th, 2023, around 7:30 p.m., police, Lumby Fire Department, and BC Emergency Health Services personnel responded to a report of an ATV collision in the 100-block of Shuswap Falls Road. The investigation has determined a pair of men were travelling on separate ATVs when one of the riders failed to negotiate a turn in the road, went over an embankment, and was ejected. The second person made their way to a nearby residence and called for help. Despite the best efforts of rescuers, the 47-year old Quesnel man was pronounced deceased at the scene.

While the cause of the collision remains under investigation, alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the incident," states Constable Chris Terleski, Media Relations Officer for the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP. "Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the deceased during this difficult time.
