A B.C. woman died following a three vehicle crash on the Trans-Canada Highway in Glacier National Park on Thursday, Sept. 5.

The crash happened near the Tupper-Timber snowshead about five kilometres east of the Rogers Pass summit at around 4 p.m.

The woman was driving eastbound when she lost control and drove into the westbound lanes. She was struck by two vehicles heading west, RCMP said.

The highway was closed for about five hours while RCMP investigated. A helicopter was brought in to take the women to hospital.

She died at the scene.

The occupants of the westbound vehicle were taken to Golden General Hospital where they were treated and later released.

Cpl. Jeff Watson of Trans Canada East Traffic Services thanked the citizens who arrived on scene first and helped the victims until emergency personnel arrived.
