Woman Dies in Highway Crash


A passenger was killed Sunday in a two-vehicle crash that closed Highway 16 east of Burns Lake for hours.

Corporal Madonna Saunderson with North District RCMP says the collision happened just before 5 p.m.

A 64-year-old woman riding in one of the two pickups was killed and Saunderson says the drivers of both vehicles were hurt but are expected to recover.

  A cause is under investigation but it was snowing along the route yesterday.

The crash happened between Freeport Road and the Tintagel Rest Area.
