A woman has been killed in an accident involving a logging truck in Agassiz.
Sergeant Annie Linteau with RCMP say it happened just after noon when the fully loaded logging truck rolled over at Lougheed Highway and East Mill Road.
“Early indications are the westbound logging truck tipped over on a curb causing the logs to come loose which struck another vehicle resulting in the death of a woman.”
Linteau says the driver was pronounced dead at the scene, while the driver of the logging truck wasn’t injured.
“We’re in the preliminary stages of our investigation and we’re going to be looking at all contributing factors.”
The area was closed for several hours following the accident.
