Police seeking witnesses to fatal crash

RCMP are seeking the drivers of two commercial vehicles they believe narrowly avoided a collision with a pickup truck before it went off the road near Cluculz Lake last month.

Mounties said a northern B.C. woman died at the scene while an Alberta woman, also in her 20s, was taken to hospital with serious injuries after their vehicle went off the road Sept. 26 on Highway 16 near Hillcrest Way, about 40 kilometres east of Vanderhoof.

Police, who were called to the scene at 6:30 p.m., believe at least two commercial truck drivers may have had a "near-miss" with the vehicle in question - a westbound black, 2018 Chevrolet Silverado pickup with an Alberta licence plate.

"The commercial trucks involved are believed to be a westbound bulk transport truck and an eastbound tanker truck," RCMP said. "The drivers of those commercial trucks are asked to contact investigators with any information they may have regarding this vehicle or the collision."

The drivers and anyone with information regarding the collision are asked to contact Cpl. Michael Collis or Cst. Leonor Blanche of Prince George Regional Traffic Services at 250-649-4004 and reference file 2020-577.
