A 52-year-old Salmo man is dead after crashing into a parked dump truck.

At approximately 9:25 a.m. on Sunday, Salmo RCMP say Salmo resident Roger Irwin was involved in an accident on Railway Avenue (Highway 6) and Third Street. Irwin’s car crashed into a parked dump truck.

He was transported to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital in Trail by ambulance where he was pronounced dead.

“According to witnesses, the automobile made a wide left turn onto Highway 6 from Third Street into the far parking lot on the west side of the highway and drove slowly into the driver side rear tires of the parked dump truck,” an RCMP release stated.

Police say the initial investigation indicates that Irwin may have been experiencing a medical condition just prior to the collision.

The BC Coroner Service, Salmo RCMP and the West Kootenay Traffic Services are continuing its investigation into the accident.
