Two drivers are dead after a head-on collision Tuesday on Highway 1, seven kilometres east of Sicamous.
Shortly after 1 p.m., Mounties responded to a report of a serious crash on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Investigators say a 73-year-old man driving westbound in a pickup truck from Sicamous crossed the centre line colliding with an eastbound sedan driven by a 46-year-old woman from Salmon Arm.
Both drivers were already dead when first responders arrived, according to RCMP. There were no other occupants in the vehicles. Road and weather conditions were not contributing factors.
Highway 1 was closed for several hours while police completed their investigation at the scene and the vehicles and debris were removed.
The RCMP and the B.C. Coroner’s Service are investigating.
