Fatal crash near Paul Lake

Kamloops Rural and City RCMP responded to a single vehicle roll-over in the 1500 block, about 3 km. north east of the turn off to Paul Lake.

Preliminary investigation reveals a west bound vehicle with five occupants lost control in a set of curves, speed is believed to be a contributing factor. 

The male passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. The remaining four occupants, including the 45-year-old female driver, were transported to Royal Inland Hospital. 

The investigation into the accident continues with the assistance of a Traffic Analyst, Kamloops City Traffic Unit, Central Interior District Traffic Services and the BC Coroners Service.
