A man has died following a three-vehicle crash along Highway 1 west of Revelstoke early this morning.

On Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 5:41 a.m., Revelstoke RCMP were called to the scene of a fatal crash involving three vehicles, according to an RCMP press release.

The collision, between two passenger vehicles and a commercial vehicle, happened on Highway 1 just west of Revelstoke.

RCMP said evidence at the scene indicated an eastbound Pontiac attempted to pass a transport truck and collided head on with a westbound Honda. The Pontiac then struck the eastbound semi.

The driver of the Pontiac, a 20-year-old man, died at the scene, police said. The two occupants of the Honda sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to hospital.

The driver of the commercial vehicle was not injured.

The crash closed the Trans-Canada but the highway has since been reopened to  alternating traffic.
