DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – One person has died after a collision on Highway 97 at the Braden Road.
The Dawson Creek RCMP shared late Friday that one of the drivers involved in a three-vehicle collision on Monday, November 16, has died.
Dawson Creek RCMP were dispatched to a motor vehicle collision at Highway 97S and Braden Road. The investigation determined that a vehicle traveling southbound on Braden Road failed to stop before entering the highway, resulting in a collision with two other vehicles.
One driver suffered severe life-threatening injuries and was air-lifted to a Vancouver hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, that person has now passed away. The identity of the person has not been released.
Roadways were snow-covered and slippery at the time, with the region just having ended a snowfall warning.
Dawson Creek RCMP would like to remind drivers to take care in winter driving conditions.
The arrival of winter and snowfall requires that drivers slow their speed relative to road and weather conditions.
Give yourself additional time to drive to your location, ensure that your tires have sufficient tread and are rated for driving in the snow, wear your seatbelt and drive defensively.
In heavy snowfall, conditions consider not driving if you do not have to, wait until the snowfall has ended, and give enough time for the roadways to be cleared.
