One man is dead after his Mercedes crashed into an armoured truck late Sunday, January 5th. 

The crash took place at approximately 11:30 p.m. on the Comox Valley Parkway.

The occupants of the armoured truck were uninjured and remained at the scene after the collision. 

Once police arrived on site, they determined that the Mercedes had crossed over the centre line before colliding head-on with the armoured truck.

Traffic in the area was affected for several hours as RCMP officers, workers from Comox Valley Municipal Traffic, and the BC Coroners Service investigated the scene. 

“Investigators are looking for witnesses who observed the collision or the vehicle prior to the collision, or who may have dash-cam footage” said Cst. Monika Terragni, Comox Valley RCMP Media Relations Officer, in a statement. 

Anyone who has information about this collision is asked to call the Comox Valley RCMP at (250) 338- 1321 and refer to file number 2020-312.
