Vernon RCMP members are continuing their investigation into the fatal motor vehicle crash that occurred just after 1 a.m. on Oct. 23rd on 32nd Street in Vernon.

As part of their investigation into this crash, officers have learned that two men stopped to assist the victims of this crash.

“They helped out for a few minutes then left the crash scene, walking down the street before our officers could speak to them,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

Investigators are asking the two men to please call the Vernon RCMP office at 250-545-7171 so they can speak to them about their involvement with the crash victims that morning.

One woman was killed while the passenger of the car who was injured has since been transferred back to Vernon Jubilee Hospital to continue her recovery.
