One person dead in Saturday single-vehicle accident

The incident occurred several kilometres northwest of Grand Forks on Saturday

One person died Saturday evening in a single-vehicle crash just northwest of Grand Forks on Hwy 3. Emergency vehicles were seen with lights and sirens climbing up Spencer Hill at dusk as they rushed towards the scene. RCMP say that the driver, who was not from the Grand Forks or Boundary area was the lone occupant of the vehicle and did not survive the crash. Speed is believed to be a factor.

The RCMP is working with the BC Coroner Services to determine if alcohol played a role in the incident as well. The driver’s family was notified of the incident.
