One dead after single-vehicle crash in Powell River

POWELL RIVER, B.C. – The Powell River RCMP has confirmed the death of a man in a vehicle accident over the weekend.

Constable Ron Palmquist said that at around 12:46 a.m. on June 16th, police received a report of a single-vehicle collision. A 1999 blue Ford Explorer was traveling northbound on Highway 101 near Malaspina Road.

Palmquist said after investigating, it was determined that the car lost control while rounding a corner. This caused the vehicle to “come to rest against a nearby tree”.

The RCMP, BC Ambulance Service and fire crews all responded to the scene. The 41-year-old male was confirmed deceased on scene.

The Powell River RCMP continues to investigate, with the assistance of an RCMP traffic analyst.
