The driver of a SUV has died after a motor vehicle incident outside of Woss yesterday (July 6).

RCMP in Port McNeill are currently investigating the fatal collision that involved two vehicles on Highway 19.

It was around 2:30 p.m. when police were notified of “a serious collision between a small Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) and a commercial semi truck,” stated Corp. Alex Bérubé, spokesperson for the RCMP in British Columbia, in a news release. “Initial reports indicated that the small SUV veered into the oncoming path of the semi truck, resulting in a collision.”

“Sadly, the driver of the SUV did not survive the crash,” confirmed Bérubé. “The driver of the semi truck was transported to hospital with serious injuries.”

Highway 19 was shut down for several hours yesterday to allow for the RCMP Traffic reconstructionist to conduct an investigation into the collision.

The RCMP is asking for anyone with information, including dash camera video footage in the area prior to the collision, to contact the Port McNeill RCMP at 250-956-4441.
