The Revelstoke RCMP have closed the south side of Victoria Rd. in the city for an incident that occurred overnight near the roundabout.

With a police line set up to block pedestrian and vehicle traffic, the RCMP continue to examine the area after the incident. A red Honda SUV sits with its door open within the police line with evidence markers surrounding the vehicle. BC RCMP are set to release an update to clarify what happened, but one resident nearby was able to confirm a few details that have already circulated on the Revelstoke Facebook Community Page about the incident.
