Moricetown crash claims life

RCMP say a Smithers resident lost their life Saturday in a fatal crash in Moricetown.

On April 4, at approximately 1:34 p.m., Smithers RCMP responded to a report of a single vehicle collision in the village of Moricetown.

A westbound Ford Mustang had gone off the lefthand shoulder and rolled down a steep embankment. A 47-year-old Smithers area resident, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was pronounced deceased at the scene and the three other occupants were transported to Bulkley Valley District Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The collision resulted in Highway 16 being down to single lane, alternating traffic for approximately 11 hours.

The collision is being investigated by West Pacific Region Traffic Services, North District Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Services and BC Coroners Service. The cause of the collision is still under investigation.
