The McLeod River Post - - Family, Farm & Garden -

The RCMP are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a col­li­sion which oc­curred on Oc­to­ber 4, in­volv­ing a tour bus, sev­eral ve­hi­cles and the driver of the bus. The 52-year-old fe­male driver was out­side of the bus when she struck by the bus and suf­fered fa­tal in­juries.

At 1:18 p.m., the RCMP were alerted, via 911, to the col­li­sion in the park­ing lot on High­way 93. STARS Air Am­bu­lance was dis­patched and at­tended the park­ing lot area. The fe­male was de­clared de­ceased at the scene of the in­ci­dent, and STARS was not uti­lized.

Sev­eral wit­nesses were in­ter­viewed and pre­lim­i­nary in­for­ma­tion in­di­cates that the bus driver was out­side of the bus when she was struck. The bus also struck four parked ve­hi­cles be­fore it came to rest. RCMP were on scene in­ves­ti­gat­ing for sev­eral hours, and the in­ci­dent re­mains un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion. No other peo­ple were in­jured.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion will not be pro­vided at this time.
