REVELSTOKE, B.C. - RCMP confirm one person died in a crash Monday east of Revelstoke, B.C.

Cpl. Mike Halskov says the collision between a sedan and a transport truck happened just before 4 p.m., on Highway 1 about 18 kilometres outside Revelstoke.

Police say they're investigating but aren't releasing further details on the crash.
