An 18-year-old male from Fort Langley was at the wheel of a Chevrolet Tracker mini-SUV involved in a crash that killed the 55-year-old female driver of a Saturn SL1 compact sedan on Wednesday morning (Dec. 28) five kilometres north of Spences Bridge.

Lytton RCMP said the Tracker apparently lost control and  hit the Saturn head-on Wednesday at around 10 a.m. on Highway 1.

The tracker was northbound, while the Saturn was traveling south.

The driver of the southbound car, a woman from Oak Bay, died at the scene while her passenger, a 17-year-old female also from Oak Bay was transported to Kamloops' Royal Inland Hospital.

The Fort Langley man had to be cut out of the Tracker and was transported by Air Ambulance to Royal Inland Hospital for further treatment.

Police said icy road conditions are believed to have contributed to the accident.
