The B.C. Coroners Service have confirmed the names of the two people who died in the two recent head-on collisions on local highways.
Tyler Andrew Mackenzie, 21, was the victim in the collision Sunday on Highway 97 South at Buckhorn Road. He was a rear-seat passenger in a northbound car that collided with a southbound pickup truck, the service said.
Police have said two other passengers in the car were sent to hospital with serious injuries.
Vernon Kirk Adams, 73, of McBride, was the victim in Friday morning's collision on Highway 16 near the community of 700 people, 220 kilometres east of Prince George.
Adams was the driver of a car that police believe slid into the path of an oncoming pickup truck carrying three people.
