RCMP have released more information about a fatal two-vehicle crash near Fraser Lake this morning.
Investigators say commercial transport vehicle and a pickup crashed head-on approximately 2km east of the community shortly after 8:30 am.
Mounties say the 31 year old male driver of the pickup was pronounced dead at the scene while his female passenger escaped with minor injuries.
Staff Sergeant Pat McTiernan with North District RCMP says witnesses report that the pickup was attempting to pass another vehicle, but failed to complete the pass.
The driver of the transport truck was not injured in the collision.
The highway has since been reopened to single lane alternating traffic.
