According to RCMP, the cause of the collision is still under investigation; however, initial reports indicate that a vehicle with Manitoba plates was travelling westbound on Highway 1 near Summit Lake when it crossed the centre line and made contact with an eastbound vehicle from Alberta.

This caused the west bound vehicle to spin into the eastbound lane where it was struck on the passenger side by a second eastbound vehicle.

The passenger of the westbound vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and remaining three passengers, one critical condition and one serious injuries, were transported to hospitals in both Salmon Arm and Kamloops.

Those inside the other vehicles were reported to have only minor injuries.

Traffic was stopped for four hours during the investigation of this collision.
