Man killed in Highway 3A crash at Beasley

A single-vehicle incident near Nelson over the long weekend has claimed the life of a 37-year-old man visiting from Texas.

A media release from the Nelson RCMP detachment states that the male was reported missing by his wife on Feb. 17, just before 11:30 p.m. after failing to return from a visit to his brother’s residence in Nelson. The pair, who had travelled to the region from El Paso, Texas, were staying in South Slocan.

The following morning just before 8 a.m., a friend of the missing individual called police to report that the missing man had been involved in a single-vehicle accident near the 5000 block of Highway 3A and 6 in Beasley.

When officers arrived, they found the man’s vehicle, a 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser approximately 60-70 meters down an embankment, with the missing male ejected and located a short distance away.
