A 61-year-old Rossland man was killed in a single car crash on Gelesz Road on Sunday.

The accident occurred around 2 p.m. when the 2013 GMC pickup driven by the man failed to negotiate a curve on the snowy roads and went off the road and down an embankment.

The driver was deceased at the scene, said RCMP Cpl. John Ferguson of the West Kootenay Traffic Services.

He said the crash is still under investigation, with the West Kootenay Traffic Services and the BC Coroner service working on the case.

The man’s name has not been released.

“Especially at this time of year we encourage everyone to drive safe and be extra cautious on the roads,” said Ferguson.
