Cawston man identified as victim of bizarre crash
Cawston man Rodolph Joseph Ernest Legault has been identified as the man killed earlier this month when his vehicle plunged off a steep embankment near Kelowna.
The 67-year-old died around 1:45 p.m. on July 13 shortly after parking on a forest service road about five kilometres from Big White Road, the BC Coroners Service said in a press release.
Legault “got out of his vehicle, but then noticed the vehicle starting to roll backwards. He re-entered the vehicle in an attempt to stop it, but the edge of the roadway gave way, and the jeep went down an 82-metre embankment,” the release continued.
The incident is still under investigation by BC Coroners Service and RCMP Traffic Services.
Legault’s family has request privacy.
