Two young men die in rollover

Campbell River RCMP continue to investigate tragic truck accident that claimed the lives of two local residents

A roadside memorial was erected in Campbell River following a tragic weekend accident that claimed the lives of two young men.

Two young men died early Saturday morning during a rollover crash on Nursery Road in Campbell River.

Police say the 20-year-old driver and the 21-year-old passenger were likely not wearing seatbelts when the 1997 Chevrolet pickup rolled sometime before 2 a.m.

Campbell River RCMP found the truck on its side and both men were pronounced dead at the scene. They have not yet been identified.

Investigators continue to examine whether alcohol or speed were contributing factors in the crash.
