An accident in Telkwa on the weekend claimed the life of a Terrace resident.
According to an RCMP press release, a red Pontiac Grand Prix was travelling eastbound on Saturday night when it went off the highway.
Due to the hidden spot the car stopped in, the accident wasn’t reported to the RCMP until Sunday morning just after 8am.
The driver of the car was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and the 35-year-old passenger was pronounced dead at the scene.
The accident closed the highway for much of Sunday as crews recovered the vehicle and investigated the crash.
