The RCMP are still investigating the incident and are asking for witnesses to come forward.

The convoy will begin at the Castlegar Community Complex at 1:30 p.m. and make its way down Columbia Avenue.

Organizers are expecting anywhere from 25 to 45 vehicles to participate. They also plan to use the event to spread the “Slow Down, Move Over” message to drivers approaching emergency road crews.
