PEACHLAND - The man who was killed when his Jeep Cherokee rolled on Highway 97 this past weekend has been identified.
The B.C. Coroners Service says Cory Lee Harasivich of West Kelowna died after crashing the SUV he was driving early Sunday morning. The vehicle hit an abutment and rolled several times on Highway 97 just north of the intersection with Highway 97C around 1:30 a.m., June 12.
Harasivich was the only occupant in the vehicle. An RCMP release previously said the 36-year-old was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene.
RCMP and the coroners service continue to investigate.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover the cost of his funeral, which is planned for Saturday, June 25.
