A Revelstoke man has been identified as the victim of a car crash inside a snowshed east of town on Tuesday afternoon, the BC Coroners Service reports.

Todd Owen Madill, 40, died after his car swerved over the centre line and collided with an oncoming tractor trailer inside the Lanark snowshed on the Trans-Canada Highway.

The incident happened around 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 11. The tunnel is located between Albert Canyon and Glacier National Park.

Madill was heading east when the collision occurred. He was seriously injured in the crash and died at the scene, despite the best efforts of first responders to save him.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing. "Road conditions were noted to be poor at the time," coroner Larry Marzinzik said in a statement.

Madill's family have been notified of his death and they have requested privacy at this time.
