Third logging fatality

A logging truck driver was killed last week near Fort St. John when his truck failed to negotiate a curve and rolled.

The BC Forest Safety Council reports that on Feb 16, the driver was fatally injured north of Fort St John, in poor road and weather conditions.

The Coroners Service and RCMP are investigating.

This was the third harvesting fatality of 2017, the safety council says.

It recommends industry workers assess road conditions and suspend or delay work if necessary.
