Salmo man dies in single vehicle crash

A single vehicle crash Sunday has left a Salmo BC man dead after driving off Highway 3 east of Salmo BC.

(RCMP) On January 29, 2017 a 72 year old male from Salmo was the driver of a single vehicle that drove off Highway 3 approximately four kilometers East of Salmo, BC. The male was found deceased at the scene.

The name of the deceased male is not being released at this time out of respect for the family and until permission from the Coroner has been given.

RCMP members of West Kootenay Traffic and Salmo Detachment in conjunction with the BC Coroner’s Service will be working together to determine the cause of the collision. At this point, road conditions do not appear to be a contributing factor.
