Young woman dies in head-on MVI on Trans-Canada Highway

A 23-year-old woman died in a Dec. 20 head-on collision on the Trans-Canada Highway between Revelstoke and Golden on Friday night.

A 23-year-old woman died in a Dec. 20 head-on collision on the Trans-Canada Highway between Revelstoke and Golden on Friday night.

Golden RCMP spokesperson Cst. Amber Brunner said the incident happened at 8 p.m. local time on the Trans-Canada about five kilometres west of Golden.

Brunner said an eastbound sports-utility vehicle lost control and crossed over into the westbound lane, where it struck an oncoming pickup truck.

The driver of the SUV died on scene. A passenger in the pickup truck was treated and transported to hospital in Golden, then to hospital in Calgary.

The incident closed the highway for four hours.

Golden RCMP did not indicate a cause for the accident. The investigation is ongoing.

Brunner reminded motorists to take caution on winter roads. “This is a very busy time of year on local highways and road conditions can change very quickly,” she said. “Please give yourself extra time when making your travel plans and get everyone home safe.”

Golden RCMP released only limited information on the incident. An RCMP dispatcher said police wouldn’t be able to provide any more details until Monday morning when the Golden RCMP detachment office opened.
