  • Highway 1 head-on crash in B.C. kills two

Two people have died in a head-on crash on Highway 1 near Sicamous, B.C.

RCMP say a 73-year-old man driving a pickup crossed the centre line and hit a sedan coming in the opposite direction.

The man, from Sicamous, and a 46-year-old woman from nearby Salmon Arm were killed.

Police say the crash happened on Tuesday afternoon and road and weather conditions were not contributing factors.

No one else was in either vehicle.

Police say the highway was closed for several hours while they completed their investigation.
