One person has died in a collision on Highway 3 west of Sparwood.
Constable Mike Halskov of BC RCMP Traffic Services says a motorcyclist collided with a tree on the highway Thursday afternoon.
“We’re not sure of the sequence here exactly but he either collided with a tree that had fallen across the road already or was hit by a tree that was falling across the highway.” says Cst. Halskov.
The highway has since re-opened in both directions.
BC Ambulance Service, BC Coroners Service, East Kootenay Traffic Services and Elk Valley RCMP are investigating the collision.
