Just before 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 11 police were called to a fatal, single motor vehicle accident in Rossland. A pickup truck, with four passengers, rolled down a steep embankment by Hwy 3B and the Centennial Trail.
Upon arrival at the scene, emergency services and police found the body of a 24 year old Rossland male who was deceased as a result of the accident. Alcohol and seatbelts are believed to have been contributing factors in the accident.
The driver and two other passengers were taken to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Out of respect for the deceased’s family, police have not released names.
