According to the report, the pilot either descended too low, or was not aware of the descent and the low altitude of the aircraft, leading to the crash near 12 nautical miles east of Fort St. John. The investigation did not turn up a reason for the pilot’s actions.

The male pilot, and sole occupant of the aircraft, died in the collision, and the Cessna 185 was destroyed, with no post-impact fire. The report adds that the emergency locator transmitter activated on impact.

The name of the pilot has not been released.
