Man walking along highway killed in Burns Lake crash

Mounties are investigating the fatal collision

Burns Lake RCMP are investigating following a fatal pedestrian collision Friday afternoon.

According to police, a male pedestrian was hit by a vehicle in the 7200-block of Hwy. 35 just after 5:20 p.m.

When Mounties arrived, the man was being treated by paramedics and was transported to hospital where he subsequently died of his wounds.

Approximately an hour beforehand, police had received two reports of a man dressed in all black clothing walking south on the southbound side of Hwy. 35.

Mounties drove to the site and offered the pedestrian a ride; he declined and since he was not doing anything illegal, police let him go.

Burns Lake RCMP and the North District Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service are investigation.

The Independent Investigations Office of B.C. has determined that there was no police involvement in the man’s death.
