A 27-year-old Quebec man was killed after being hit by a van on Highway 97 near Oliver.
BC Coroner’s Service and RCMP are investigating the circumstances that led to his death.
On Aug. 24 at 10:38 p.m. RCMP responded to a report of a man yelling and jumping in front of traffic on the highway near Seacrest Hill Road.
Only minutes later a second call reported the man had allegedly jumped in front of and been struck by a van travelling southbound near Sportsman’s Bowl Road.
The impact tossed him into the northbound lane where he was then struck by a second vehicle.
Despite CPR attempts from witnesses and then from first responders, the man died of his injuries in hospital shortly after.
