Man dies in ATV crash

Man was driving on West Harrison Forest Service Road

A  20-year-old man died while riding an ATV on West Harrison Forest Service Road Saturday afternoon.

RCMP said the man was driving on the remote road, north of Harrison Hot Springs, at 4:30 pm when he failed to negotiate a turn. He then ran off the service road and down an embankment. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

“We encourage people who use all terrain vehicles to take available courses from a reputable instructor,” said Sgt. Peter Thiessen of the RCMP’s E Division.

“I don’t know if this particular young man had taken any courses but it can only help make you a safer on these vehicles.”
