A woman is dead and a man severely injured after a serious collision near Moyie, south of Cranbrook.

RCMP are reporting that mid-morning on Wednesday, Dec. 28, a two-vehicle collision occurred on Highway 3/95, about 20 kilometres from Cranbrook.

The accident happened at about 10:30 a.m., when a westbound Buick Century lost control on slippery roads and crossed the centre line into the path of an eastbound semi truck and trailer carrying dry goods.

The collision resulted in the death of the female driver, and severe injuries to the male passenger travelling in the Buick. RCMP said the names of the occupants of car are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

The accident happened on a two-lane stretch of Provincial Highway near Moyie. At the time of the collision, roads were in good driving condition, police said; however, black ice was present in shaded areas.

The matter is currently under investigation by members of the East Kootenay Traffic Unit out of Cranbrook.

Highway 3 between Cranbook and Creston was closed, and not expected to reopen until mid-afternoon Wednesday.
