Alberta woman dies in collision near McLeod Lake

The investigation revealed that two commercial vehicles, accompanied by a pilot vehicle, had pulled over to the side of the road to chain up.

One of the Commercial Vehicle drivers, a 53 year-old Alberta woman, was on the driver’s side of her unit putting on chains when a passing transport truck slid sideways on the ice and struck the woman who was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The investigation is in its initial stages but will continue to determine if any criminality was involved.

The North District Traffic Services Unit is working in partnership with the BC Coroners Service and is currently withholding the name of the deceased pending notification of next of kin.
