RCMP, coroner investigate fatal crash near Craigellachie

Black Press staff writer

RCMP and the BC Coroners Service continue to investigate a motor-vehicle incident that resulted in the death of a Calgary man.

On Monday, the BC Coroners service reported that Kim Alan Edwards, 57, died as a result of a two-vehicle collision near Avoca Road in Craigellachie.

Edwards was the sole occupant of a vehicle travelling east on the Trans-Canada Highway early Friday morning (Aug. 15), when he lost control of the vehicle.

Police say the vehicle went off-road to the right, returned to the highway and was struck by a westbound transport truck. Edwards sustained a head injury as a result. BC Coroners Service spokesperson Barb McLintock states Edwards was taken by ambulance to Shuswap Lake General Hospital in Salmon Arm, and then to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. He died from his injuries the following day.

McLintock notes Edwards had recently moved from Kamloops to Calgary.
