FORT ST. JOHN, BC: The Independent Investigations Office (IIO) of BC is investigating a motor vehicle incident in Fort St. John.

Information reported by the RCMP states that at approximately 7:00 p.m. on March 8, 2022, police received a call concerned for a woman’s wellbeing as she was alleged to be intoxicated and in distress while driving a red Dodge Journey northbound on Highway 97. Officers located the woman at a gas station in the 16900-block of Highway 97 before she drove away heading southbound on Highway 97. It is reported that police briefly attempted to stop the vehicle without success.

A short time later, the Dodge was found to have left the road. Despite life-saving efforts, the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The IIO was notified of the incident shortly after it occurred and has commenced an investigation to determine what role, if any, police actions or inactions played in the woman’s death.
