Traffic fatality near Kimberley

One person is dead after a single vehicle rollover last Friday.

Not much is known about a single vehicle accident on Hwy 95A just north of Kimberley last Friday afternoon  except that it was a rollover and there was a fatality.

The accident reportedly  occurred about eight kilometres from Kimberley in the Meadowbrook area. Southeast Traffic Services and the Kimberley RCMP closed the highway for several hours to investigate. A  statement from the RCMP was not available at press item.

Meanwhile weather conditions may be a contributing factor in a Roger’s Pass accident that took the life of a 12 year old boy on Friday morning.

Police say a truck and car collided head-on just after 10 a.m. Friday, about two kilometres east of the Rogers Pass Summit.

A 12-year-old boy riding in the truck was pronounced dead at the scene. Four others were seriously injured.

The roads were slushy at the time of the accident.
