One person was killed Monday morning when two commercial trucks collided on Highway 97 near the Dunkley Lumber sawmill, Quesnel RCMP said.
RCMP were called to the scene at 8:19 a.m. and are investigating what was described as a head-on collision between a truck hauling lumber and a truck hauling chips.
"The highway has been closed in both directions as police investigate the crash," RCMP said. "At this time a detour has not been established."
The stretch was reopened to single-lane alternating traffic at 4 p.m., according to an update from DriveBC.
Editor's note: A previous version of this story stated it was a collision between two logging trucks. RCMP have since clarified that it was, in fact, a chip truck and a lumber truck.
