RCMP are investigating a two-car, head-on collision which took place Monday, May 5 at 2 p.m. in which a 65-year-old Salmon Arm woman, who was the passenger in a Ford Fusion, later died in hospital.

The woman had been experiencing chest pains just prior to the collision.

The Salmon Arm RCMP report the Ford was westbound on the Trans-Canada Highway intending on turning left onto Highway 97B, when the driver turned into the path of an eastbound Toyota Camry.

Both drivers sustained only minor injuries and all passengers were wearing seat belts.

The passenger in the Ford was transported to Shuswap Lake General Hospital where efforts to resuscitate her were not successful.

Members of the RCMP’s Trans-Canada East Traffic Services were called in to review the collision and the investigation is ongoing.
