One dead after collision near Yahk
A 57-year-old Creston woman is dead following a two-vehicle collision, which occurred in the townsite of Yahk, B.C., at approximately 12:45 p.m. on Monday, August 11.
The collision happened when an older model Nissan Sentra, being driven by the deceased and travelling southbound, crossed the double solid centre line into the path of a northbound, newer model Ford four-door station wagon.
The collision occurred fully in the northbound lane of travel, according to an RCMP press release.
The female driver of the Nissan was pronounced deceased at the scene, while her male travelling companion was transported to hospital by air ambulance with undisclosed injuries.
The four people travelling in the Ford were uninjured in the collision.
Members of the East Kootenay Traffic Services Unit continue to investigate.
