On Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at 5:41 AM, Revelstoke RCMP were called to the scene of a fatal crash involving three vehicles.
The collision, between two passenger vehicles and a commercial vehicle, happened on Highway 1 just west of Revelstoke.
Evidence on scene indicate that an east bound Pontiac attempted to pass a transport truck and collided, head on, with a west bound Honda. The Pontiac then struck the east bound semi.
The driver of the Pontiac, a 20-year-old man, was pronounced deceased on the scene. The two occupants of the Honda sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to hospital. The driver of the commercial vehicle was not injured.
The crash had closed Highway 1 but has since been reopened to alternating traffic.
