A fiery crash on the Trans-Canada Highway near Salmon Arm, B.C., on Monday afternoon claimed the life of one man, and now police are looking for potential witnesses to come forward as they piece together what happened.
In a press release, RCMP said a BMW SUV was travelling east when it lost control.
“The BMW SUV veered into the westbound lanes and into the path of a westbound Ford F150 towing a tent trailer,” RCMP said in a press release.
“The two vehicles collided and passing motorists who stopped were able to get the driver and passenger out of the white F150. The driver and his female passenger were taken to hospital with serious injuries.”
RCMP said despite the best efforts of the people at the scene, they could not get the driver of the BMW out of the vehicle, which was fully engulfed in flames.
