A 34-year-old woman is dead and her four children all suffered injuries in a head-on collision near Trail on Saturday night.
Emergency crews were called out to the fatal crash on Hwy 22 near Hanna Drive shortly after 5 pm.
The investigation determined that a northbound Ford pickup crossed the centre line of the highway and hit a southbound Chevrolet SUV.
Police said the woman driving the Chevrolet was killed in the crash, while her children, who are between the ages of eight and 14, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the Ford pickup was uninjured.
Driver impairment has been ruled out as a cause of the crash, the BC Highway Patrol explained, but police are seeking more witnesses.
Anyone who saw the crash, or has relevant dash cam footage of the Ford pickup driving prior to the accident, is urged to contact the BCHP’s Nelson office at 250-354-5180.
