An 18-year-old passenger died after British Columbia. The route bus she was on was swayed by a courier van on Highway 3A near Castlegar.
At that time, 16 students from Quebec were visiting by bus. An 18-year-old woman was sitting next to her window, where a van crashed and was seriously injured.
"After classmates attempted first aid, the injured student was transferred to Trail Regional Hospital and then to Kelowna General Hospital, where they continue to sustain life," said RCMP Insp. Chad Budley of the statement. She is not expected to survive.
RCMP Victim Support and Counselors at Selkirk College are helping the students involved.
The courier van driver stayed at the scene.
Police say investigators are trying to figure out why the van driver crossed the centerline and are seeking information and video footage from several drivers behind the van. I am. The video from the bus shows three vehicles in particular. A blue 2-door coupe, a silver SUV, and an old gray Nissan Pathfinder.
B.C. John Horgan said his government was reaching out to provide assistance to the Government of Quebec.
