Fatal accident north of Invermere
A Village of Radium Hot Springs woman has died after she was involved in a two-car collision on Highway 93/95, 3 km north of Invermere.
According to a release from East Kootenay Traffic Services Cpl. Shayne Parker, Columbia Valley RCMP and East Kootenay Traffic Services responded to a two vehicle collision at 9:06 a.m. on Wednesday, December 12. A southbound Dodge Dakota lost control and crossed the center line, and was struck by a northbound Chevy Silverado. The driver of the Dodge Dakota was a 63 year old female from Radium Hot Springs. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The occupants of the Chevy Silverado were a 27 year old female and her 3 year old son. They were both taken to hospital with serious but not life threatening injuries.
The collision is still under investigation, and Parker said it appears that speeding relative to the road conditions is a factor.
