The Fort St. John RCMP are still looking for witnesses to a collision that killed two people Tuesday evening.
At approximately 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, a southbound vehicle carrying three people turned left off the Rose Prairie Road onto the Jones Subdivision road and was hit by a northbound motorcycle. An elderly female passenger in the vehicle was killed instantly in the collision as was the 25 year-old male motorcycle driver.
The RCMP have confirmed that the 25 year-old male was from Fort St. John, but haven’t stated where the 82 year-old female was from. The RCMP say they will not be releasing the names of the two victims in this collision.
The male driver of the vehicle was not injured and the front female passenger was treated for minor injuries at the Fort St. John Hospital.
The RCMP, Peace Region Traffic Services and the RCMP Integrated Collision Reconstruction Unit are still working to determine the exact cause of the collision.
Although the RCMP have received several witness statements, they are still looking for more people to come forward. The RCMP are looking for people who may have witnessed a blue motorcycle traveling north on the Rose Prairie Road shortly before the incident. There were reportedly several other drivers in the area at the time of the
incident, as well as pedestrians walking along the community trails on 100 street and 119 avenue who may be able to assist police with information.
Anyone with information who has not already been spoken to by police are urged to contact Fort St John RCMP at 250-787-8100. If you wish to remain anonymous please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or via the web at www.crimestoppersnebc.ca
