There was no one else in the car when it struck the pole, later assessed by Fortis BC, some time before 11:15 a.m., Grand Forks Fire/Rescue Chief George Seigler told The Gazette.

The stretch of highway between the crash and the nearest intersection at Whitehall Road was dry and bare of ice, Seigler said.

A search of the vehicle by volunteer firefighters showed now leaks or hazards.
