A Castlegar man is dead after his truck was found at the bottom of an embankment near a forest service road.
RCMP said in a statement Monday that a witness reported seeing a vehicle’s lights and hearing the sound of trees breaking Saturday evening on Deer Park Forest Service Road.
Emergency responders visited the scene and found a pickup truck had gone off the roadway and down a 182-metre (600-foot) embankment.
The only occupant of the vehicle, a 20-year-old driver, had been ejected from the truck and was found nearby.
RCMP said the accident is currently under investigation.
