A man was killed yesterday when the pickup truck he was driving collided with a logging truck on a rural road near Mackenzie.

Mackenzie RCMP were called to the 93 km marker of the Finlay Forest Service Road just before 1 p.m. along with the fire department, ambulance, B.C. Coroner's Service and Worksafe B.C.

The 43-year-old driver of the pickup truck was confirmed dead at the scene. Police say he's originally from Penticton but was working in the Fort Ware area at the time of the incident.

Early reports from the investigation suggest the trucks met on a narrow, single lane bridge and the pickup truck collided with the concrete  post before hitting the trailer of the logging truck. The cab compartment of the pickup was significantly damaged. The logging truck damage was minimal.

The investigation into this accident continues.
