DAWSON CREEK, B.C. — The victim of the Highway 97 collision on Sunday has been identified.

The accident that occurred on Sunday morning on Highway 97 resulted in the passing of Kyle Duchesne.

Duchesne was pronounced deceased at the scene, while the other vehicle’s occupant attended the hospital with minor injuries.
