Fatal crash on Hwy 97 claims one life…

Police are asking for witnesses to come forward following a two vehicle crash that claimed the life of a driver on Monday afternoon…

Police say at approximately 4:00 PM on September 26, 2022, officers attended the crash scene on the Hart Highway at Weisbrod Road in Prince George. Investigators have since determined that a blue Pontiac Torrent crossed the centre median and collided with a logging truck.

The driver of the Pontiac Torrent did not survive the incident, while the lone passenger of that car was transported to hospital in critical condition. The driver of the logging truck was not seriously injured. Police closed the highway for several hours while an RCMP Collision Reconstructionist attended to gather evidence from the area.

To further the investigation, police are looking to speak with any witnesses to this incident that were not spoken to on Monday.

Investigators are also asking that if anyone has dash cam footage of the incident, they call the non-emergency line at 250-561-3300 to speak with an investigator. Please quote file number 2022-34946.

This investigation is ongoing.
