Kamloops RCMP responded to a report of a crash at approximately 11:30 p.m. yesterday, Sept. 15, on Heffley-Louis Creek Road where the female driver died at the scene, Cpl. Mike Halskov told in an email.

An infant was found in the vehicle and was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Sarah Morris with B.C. Emergency Health Services.
