Kamloops RCMP are investigating the death of a 50-year-old man who died early this morning at the Provincial Weigh Scales heading out of Kamloops on Highway 1.

A truck driver called the ambulance after the man reportedly had a seizure at about 6 a.m. this morning.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen the man at the scales before 6 a.m. to contact the local detachment at 250-828-3000.
