One man is dead after a motor vehicle incident on Sunday, April 7, involving an automobile and a parked dump truck in Salmo, B.C.
In a press release, Salmo RCMP stated they responded to the crash at approximately 9:25 a.m. The male driver was transported to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital by ambulance where he was pronounced deceased.
The male has been identified as 52-year-old Salmo resident, Roger Irwin.
RCMP said witnesses indicated the vehicle made a wide left turn onto Hwy 6 from 3rd Street — into the far parking lot on the west side of the highway — before hitting the parked dump truck.
RCMP said from the initial investigation it appears Irwin may have been experiencing a medical condition just prior to the collision.
The BC Coroner Service, Salmo RCMP and West Kootenay Traffic Services are continuing to investigate.
