Two men were killed in Sunday's Trans-Canada crash

Two dead in Highway 1 crash

Two men were killed in a crash on the Trans-Canada Highway east of Revelstoke Sunday afternoon.

The highway between Revelstoke and Golden was closed for about four hours after a westbound Honda Accord lost control on a corner 15 kilometres east of Revelstoke and swerved in front of an oncoming semi truck at about 4:15 p.m. 

The truck driver was unable to avoid the collision, and the driver and passenger of the car were killed. The truck driver was uninjured.

An RCMP officer was parked on the side of the highway where the collision occurred, and witnessed the crash. While he was able to quickly respond to the victims, the two men were pronounced dead at the scene.

In a press release, Sgt. Chad Badry said the road conditions were excellent at the time and weather is not believed to have been a factor in the crash.

Sunday's highway closure came two days after the same highway was closed due to significant flooding.
