One person was killed in a fiery crash just south of Prince George Wednesday.
RCMP say a tractor trailer hauling a dump truck collided with a pickup along a straight section of Highway 97 near Buckhorn Lake Road around 3 p.m.
The driver of the pickup was pronounced dead at the scene while the driver of the tractor trailer was treated in hospital for minor injuries.
Police say the impact of the crash caused the semi to catch fire.
The highway was shut down while an RCMP collision reconstructionist from Williams Lake examined the scene.
WorkSafe BC, Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement, and the BC Coroners Service are also investigating.
