WorkSafe B.C. will investigate a logging truck accident Monday that claimed the life of a Coldstream man.
Stanley J. Nelson, 56, was driving his Kenworth truck nine kilometres up the Mohr Forest Service Road, which is off the Kettle Valley Forest Service Road, and is approximately 83 kilometres off Highway 6 from Lumby, when the truck went off the road and into a ravine.
The accident happened at around 3:30 a.m.
Nelson was found by the next logging truck that came along the road.
Police and emergency health services personnel were called to the scene, where the driver was pronounced dead.
A mechanical inspection on the truck will be conducted by RCMP and WorkSafe B.C.
An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death.
