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.
