One person is dead after a collision between a tractor trailer unit and a pickup east of Prince George. The crash occurred just before 8:00pm Thursday, along Highway 16 near the turnoff to the Upper Fraser Highway.
Mounties says a tractor trailer appeared to lose control on slushy roads and jackknifed. The trailer swung into the eastbound lane and collided with the pick up, killing the driver. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The highway was closed in both directions for several hours to allow investigators to collect the evidence at the scene. Police are asking any witnesses to come forward and contact them with information about the crash.
