A Shuswap man died after he drove off the road and his truck struck a tree on Wednesday night.
On Nov. 4, at approximately 6:40 p.m., Chase RCMP responded to a report of a single-vehicle collision on Notch Hill Road, near the intersection with McKenzie Road.
When police arrived, it was determined that a pickup truck driven by a 60 year old man had left the roadway and collided with a tree.
Andrej Schmiegel, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.
There is no word on what might have caused the man to drive off the road.
Police were assisted at the scene by BC Ambulance, as well as Sorrento and Chase Fire Departments. The BC Coroners Service is continuing the investigation.
