One person has died in a multi-vehicle crash on Highway 1, just outside of Golden.
Emergency crews responded to a four-vehicle collision just after 3:10 p.m. Tuesday along Highway 1, roughly 20 kilometres west of Golden, police said in a news release.
Two passenger vehicles and two commercial vehicles were involved in the incident. Police did not specify if the person was a passenger or driver.
Investigators believe snowy conditions may have played a role in the incident. Roughly 30 centimetres fell Tuesday in Revelstoke. There is a winter storm warning in effect for the area.
DriveBC estimates the highway to reopen at 8 p.m.
Wait for it… wait for it…
