RCMP cleared of wrongdoing in fatal crash

  • RCMP cleared of wrongdoing in fatal crash

Two RCMP officers have been cleared of wrongdoing related to the fatal crash of an all-terrain vehicle in northwestern B.C.

The Independent Investigations Office, which examines all cases of death or serious harm involving police, says its review has determined two officers from the Terrace RCMP detachment did not commit any offences related to the May 23 crash.

The officers had attempted to pull over the ATV on a forest service road near Terrace because none of the three riders had helmets.

The ATV did not stop and continued about 10 kilometres north before crashing, injuring a woman who eventually died and leaving one of the two men seriously hurt.

Investigators say data from the police cruiser and evidence from witnesses show the officers did not pursue the ATV and were heading in the opposite direction when they were called to respond to a crash on the forest service road.

The report from the oversight agency says the officers acted appropriately and the case has been closed.
