One man has died after a crash just east of Prince George yesterday night (Oct. 14).
Cpl. Craig Douglass says Mounties received a report at roughly 8 p.m. of a single-vehicle crash in the 6200-block Upper Fraser Road.
When police attended the incident, a turned over SUV was discovered along with a 67-year-old man who was found deceased.
Douglass says witness statements and evidence show the driver was travelling at a high rate of speed when he failed to navigate a curve in the road.
The driver was not wearing a seatbelt at the time and he was the only person inside the vehicle.
The BC Coroners Service has attended the scene and is conducting a parallel fact-finding investigation to determine and confirm the cause of death.
Douglass says no more information will be released about the man found deceased.
