The second incident occurred this morning at 12:55 am on the South Lakeside drive in Williams Lake. A southbound vehicle left the roadway and entered the ditch on the East side of the road. The vehicle proceeded down a slight embankment and rolled onto the CN tracks, causing extensive damage to the vehicle and some damage to the railway. There were three occupants in the vehicle, two males (one 29 years old) and one female (21 years old).
The two males were pronounced dead at the scene, while the female was taken to the Cariboo Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. She was later transported Vancouver.
