Woman found dead at scene of Trail car accident

The regional fire station received the report of a car accident at 9:15 a.m., Feb. 7

A woman was found deceased at the scene of a motor vehicle accident in Trail early Friday.

“(The) BC Coroners Service is in the early stages of its fact-finding investigation from the Highway 22 area involving a female in her 60s to determine how, where, when and by what means she came to her unexpected death,” spokesperson Andy Watson told the Trail Times.

“Due to the privacy of the deceased, per the Coroners Act and provincial privacy legislation, the BC Coroners Service does not release or confirm identity.”

Captain Glen Gallamore, from Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire Rescue, previously reported that one lone occupant was found deceased at the scene, which is described as near the Rossland Avenue bocce pits.

“Trail Station 374 responded to a report of a single vehicle rollover on Highway 3B below Annable,” Gallamore reported Friday afternoon.

“One vehicle left the road and rolled down an embankment near the bocce pits on Perdue Street,” he said.

“RCMP Traffic Division and the BC Coroners Service are investigating.”

The call of a motor vehicle accident on Highway 3B west of Rossland Avenue came into the fire station at 9:15 a.m. Friday, Feb. 7.

Seven first responders from the regional fire department attended the scene within minutes, and stayed on site until almost 1 p.m.

The highway was closed for two hours while the police and coroners service investigated.

Alternating single-lane traffic was in place until the early afternoon to allow for the investigation and scene clean-up.
