KAMLOOPS - Chase RCMP confirm that one person has died in the motor vehicle incident on Highway one this morning.

Collision Reconstructionists and Analysts have been called to assist in the investigation and in determining the cause of the collision.

The highway is expected to remain closed for a number of hours.
