Salmon Arm crash victim identified
The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a woman who died after a two-vehicle collision at the junction of the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway 97B on May 5.
The victim was Gloria Gail Boda, aged 65, of Salmon Arm.
Boda was the front-seat passenger in a Ford Fusion and had been experiencing chest pains just prior to the collision.
Both drivers sustained only minor injuries and all passengers were wearing seat belts.
Boda was immediately 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, in conjunction with the BC Coroner's Service.
