VANCOUVER - Mounties in British Columbia say it has been a deadly few days on British Columbia's highways, with six people killed in separate crashes.

Chetwynd police say the male driver of a Ford F150 truck was ejected when the vehicle left Highway 29 on Thursday and he was found dead at the scene.

On Friday, a two-vehicle crash on Highway 1 in Lytton caused the death of a female driver whose vehicle pulled out onto the highway in front of a pickup truck.

On Saturday, the driver of a westbound vehicle on Highway 1 at Mountain Highway in North Vancouver veered into oncoming traffic and died of his injuries.

RCMP say a head-on collision between pickups on Highway 1 west of Salmon Arm on Sunday claimed the life of one man. Also on Sunday, a woman was killed in a multi-vehicle crash on Highway 99 near Squamish.

A head-on crash early Monday on Highway 97 south of Prince George claimed the life of the driver of a pickup after the vehicle crossed the centre line and hit a semi truck.
