Krestova man killed in crash

RCMP say a combination of factors likely resulted in the death of a Krestova man in a crash Thursday evening on Pass Creek road.

RCMP say a combination of factors likely resulted in the death of a Krestova man in a crash Thursday evening in the 3700 block of Pass Creek road.

The single vehicle rollover happened shortly before 7 p.m. and involved a crewcab pickup.

The lone man in the vehicle was found dead at the scene.

The Crescent Valley and Beasley fire departments used the jaws of life to extract the victim.

Although the cause is still under investigation by the RCMP’s traffic reconstructionist and the BC coroner’s office, according to Cst. Bill Long, “It appears that icy road conditions, driver fatigue and failing to wear a seatbelt may have all played roles in the fatal crash.”

The man’s name has not been released at the family’s request.
