A fatal crash involving a transport truck temporarily closed part of the Trans-Canada Highway in B.C.’s Interior on Tuesday morning.
Police say the crash happened just west of Revelstoke around 5:40 a.m., with a 20-year-old man dying in the three-vehicle incident.
According to the RCMP, the 20-year-old was driving an eastbound Pontiac and he tried passing a transport truck, but wound up colliding head-on with a westbound Honda.
The Pontiac then struck the eastbound semi.
Police say the 20-year-old driver was pronounced dead at the scene, while the two occupants in the Honda sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to hospital.
The driver of the transport truck wasn’t injured.
The crash closed the highway, but it has since been reopened to alternating traffic.
