RCMP in Revelstoke now tell us that one person died in a wreck on the Trans-Canada Highway near Summit Lake yesterday.
The accident happened about 40 kilometres west of Revelstoke just before 11:30 when three vehicles collided.
The cause of the collision is still under investigation, however initial reports indicate that a westbound vehicle with Manitoba licence plates crossed the centre line colliding with an east bound vehicle from Alberta.
That caused the Manitoba vehicle to rotate further into the east bound lane where it was struck on the passenger side by a second east bound vehicle.
The passenger of the west bound vehicle was pronounced dead on scene.
The driver and remaining three passengers were taken to hospital in Salmon Arm and Kamloops.
One is reported to be in critical condition.
Road conditions at the time were not good.
The investigation into what caused the first vehicle to cross the highway continues.
