PRINCETON – A 70-year-old Kamloops woman died when she was thrown from the motorhome she was a passenger in Thursday afternoon near Princeton.

Pamela Beryle Bloxom was pronounced dead at the scene after she was ejected from the vehicle.

The 72-year-old driver of a 2005 Alpha motorhome left the road and went into the ditch, according to police. He managed to get the rig back onto the highway and stop the vehicle.
