A Williams Lake man was killed in a highway crash northeast of Chetwynd Sunday.
RCMP says the 73 year-old man and his 65 year-old female passenger were in a pickup truck that hit the ditch along Highway 97 shortly before 11 a.m.
Both were rushed to hospital, but the driver later died of his injuries.
The passenger was transported by air ambulance to Edmonton and is expected to survive.
Investigators are trying to find out what caused the crash but they do not consider speed or alcohol to be factors.
