Witnesses to a deadly accident at Cherry Creek say a Mazda pickup was all over the Trans-Canada Highway before the vehicle left the road and rolled violently.
But RCMP at the scene of the incident Friday afternoon were in no position to confirm the cause of the crash.
Police, firefighters and paramedics were dispatched to Cherry Creek at 3:45 p.m. RCMP Staff Sgt. Doug Aird said the driver of the westbound Mazda had lost control on a corner. The truck slammed into several boulders before it came to a stop.
It's believed only one person was inside, but a dog handler was called in to search the area in case someone had been thrown clear of the vehicle.
A spokesperson for the B.C. Ambulance Service confirmed late Friday afternoon that no patients were taken to hospital.
Firefighters weren't able to extricate the driver's body from the wreckage until a coroner examined the crash site.
Aird said the vehicle is registered to a Lower Mainland man in his mid-50s. The deceased is a male, but his identity was not confirmed at press time.
