RCMP seeking information about fatal collision Friday in Courtenay

Comox Valley RCMP would like to hear from anyone who witnessed a fatal two-vehicle collision Friday in Courtenay.

At approximately 5:40 p.m., RCMP responded to a report of a collision near Waveland and Larch roads.

Despite the efforts of all the emergency responders who attended, one of the drivers later died from injuries suffered in the crash.

The cause of the accident is under investigation and police have not ruled out alcohol as a factor, Const. Jonathan Grabb said in a news release.

Police are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the collision, stopped to render any assistance or had any interactions with either driver before the collision or the one surviving driver after the collision to contact investigators as soon as possible.

The file is under investigation by Island District Traffic Services and the Comox Valley RCMP. Witnesses are asked to contact the Comox Valley RCMP at 250-338-1321 and quote file number 2012-14222.
