BC Coroner identifies Salmo man killed in crash

Rudolf Seeser was the driver and sole occupant of an eastbound van that collided with a westbound SUV near Salmo.

The 82-year-old Salmo man killed in a motor vehicle incident near Salmo on December 19 has been identified by the BC Coroner Service as Rudolf Seeser.

Seeser was the driver and sole occupant of an eastbound van, which was in a collision with a westbound SUV on Highway 3, about three kilometres west of Salmo at about 8 a.m. on December 19.

The lone occupant of the eastbound vehicle, a 50-year-old Salmo woman, was transported to hospital in Trail with what police described as “minor injuries.”

However, family and friends disputed that characterization, saying she has a broken clavicle, broken vertebrae that will require three months rehabilitation, broken ribs, and extensive bruising.

Road conditions were noted to be extremely poor at the time of the accident. Seeser died at the scene.

The BC Coroners Service and RCMP Traffic Services continue to investigate this death.

Seeser’s family has been notified.
