Fatal motor vehicle accident near Fraser Lake

Road conditions did not play a factor in this incident.

Fraser Lake RCMP were called to the scene of a serious Motor vehicle incident at approximately 1:30 am on Dec. 22, 2013. A single vehicle traveling East bound on Hwy.16, 34 kms West of Fraser Lake, collided with a moose.

Emergency services, local fire and rescue and Fraser Lake RCMP attended to the scene and located two occupants in the small passenger vehicle. The passenger, a 43 year old female, suffered life threatening injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene. The female driver suffered serious life threatening injuries and has since been transported to the Vancouver General hospital where she is in critical condition. Both occupants were from Burns Lake BC.

Fraser Lake RCMP and North District Traffic Services continue to investigate and a preliminary survey of the scene indicated the Moose suddenly appeared from the ditch and jumped in front of the oncoming vehicle.

The highway was closed temporarily for investigative purposes and removal of the vehicle but was soon re opened to traffic. Name of deceased had not be released at press time.
