  • Charges in crash that killed mom of 4

A 56-year-old man has been charged after a fatal crash near Trail, B.C., in October 2022 that killed a mother of four and injured her children. 

BC Highway Patrol says Terry Jackson faces three charges, including the most serious allegation of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.

Police say the head-on crash involved Jackson's pickup truck and a Chevrolet Traverse driven by a 34-year-old woman travelling with her four children. 

Officers say in a release that all five in the Traverse were taken to hospital after the crash, but the mother "tragically passed away" and the children were treated for serious injuries before being released. 

Highway patrol says Jackson was charged after an extensive investigation by police. 

The accused is due in court on Feb. 29 in Rossland, B.C.
