FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Fort St. John RCMP is looking for witnesses to a vehicle incident Monday afternoon that resulted in the death of a local man.

After reviewing video footage in the area, police noticed vehicles and pedestrians present around the time of the crash, 4:45 p.m. to 5:15 p.m., that officers would like to speak with.
