Collision on the Trans-Canada Highway west of Golden

On September 28, 2016 just before 12:30pm, the Golden-Field RCMP attended a single vehicle collision, involving a semi, on Highway 1 approximately 30 kilometres west of Golden.


The deceased is believed to be from Lumby, BC.

At this time it would appear that the semi failed to negotiate a curve, causing the vehicle to go off road and down an embankment, says Cpl. Jeff Watson with the Golden RCMP Traffic Services Unit.

Police will be continuing to investigate the collision along with the BC Coroner’s Service.
