Woman killed near Cache Creek in two-vehicle crash after hitting deer

October 13, 2020 - 3:23 PM

A woman has died after a two-vehicle crash near Cache Creek on the weekend.

Ashcroft and Clinton RCMP responded to a collision on Highway 97 near Highway 99 north of Cache Creek around 7:55 p.m. Oct. 10, according to a release from RCMP Traffic Services.

A vehicle travelling south struck a deer and lost all power on the travel portion of the highway. One person remained in the vehicle, while two others exited. Another motorist stopped to alert oncoming traffic of the hazard, as there was no lighting in the area.

However, another vehicle collided with the disabled vehicle at high speed. The disabled vehicle was pushed into a 21 year-old woman standing beside it, who was killed on impact.

The remaining occupants of the disabled vehicle were taken to hospital with varying injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening. 

The driver in the vehicle which struck the disabled car suffered minor injuries. All of the individuals involved are from the Central Interior.

Central Interior Traffic Services continues to investigate, and criminality is not suspected in the investigation.
