A 43-year-old Trail woman died on Saturday evening in a single vehicle rollover.

Trail RCMP officers, ambulance and fire received a call around 6 p.m. on Saturday evening reporting the incident. Emergency responders arrived at the scene located down a gravel road near Casino.

The woman was found to be deceased when officers arrived. A 38-year-old man was also located at the scene and suffered minor injuries. He was transported to the hospital for treatment.

Police don’t believe that alcohol was a factor in the rollover, but believe the woman was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the incident.

“This was a significant contributing factor to her death,” said a press release from the Trail RCMP detachment on Monday. “Seat belts save lives. Please wear your seatbelt at all times.”

Investigators are still looking into the cause of the accident.
