One person has died in a multi-vehicle crash on Highway 1 just outside of Golden.

According to a RCMP news release Tuesday afternoon, emergency services responded to a four-vehicle collision just after 3:10 p.m. roughly 20 kilometres west of Golden.

Two passenger vehicles and two commercial vehicles were involved in the incident. Investigators believe snowy conditions may have played a role in the incident.

DriveBC estimates the highway to reopen at 8 p.m.

Highway 1 east of Revelstoke was closed earlier for avalanche control, but according to DriveBC is now open. Road conditions include blowing snow and slushy with slippery sections.

Roughly 30 centimetres fell Tuesday in Revelstoke. Environment Canada says the storm is to continue until tomorrow. There is a winter storm warning in effect for the area.
