Calgary pair identified as victims in Slocan crash
A man and woman from Calgary have been identified as the people killed in a single-vehicle crash on Highway 6 at the Cape Horn bluffs north of Slocan on January 29.
The BC Coroners Service says Kevin Clarence Culbert, 51, was the driver of a pickup truck that left the road in the early evening. His passenger was Miranda Findell, 45.
Their vehicle crossed a pullout and rolled about 100 meters down a steep embankment onto the old road below. The vehicle was engulfed in flames. Both Culbert and Findell died at the scene.
Their names were withheld until today, pending confirmation of their identities.
Road and weather conditions were poor at the time due to heavy snow.
