  • Crash on Highway 16 kills Vancouver-area man

The RCMP say a crash on Highway 16 west of Prince George has killed a Metro Vancouver man and injured a 20-year-old Alberta resident.

An RCMP statement says the collision happened Monday as the Alberta man in a westbound pickup was overtaking an empty logging truck.

The passing lane ended before the pickup had finished its manoeuvre and police say it collided with an oncoming car.

Police say the driver of the car, who was in his 40s, died a short time later in hospital.

Officers in Prince George are leading the investigation and want to speak with the logging truck driver, who stopped to assist but left before talking with police.

Investigators are also appealing for dashcam video from anyone on Highway 16 between Fraser Lake and Vanderhoof at around 5:30 p.m. Monday.
