Coroner identifies three killed in Highway 97 accident

The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identities of three persons who died in the July 15 motor vehicle incident on Highway 97 between Lake Country and Kelowna.

The victims were Harold Reinhardt Miller, 82, from Vernon; his wife Violet Juline Miller, 79; and their great-grandson, Thomas Rhys Edward, 14, of Victoria.

Harold Miller was the driver of a car heading northbound on Highway 97 about 4:40 p.m. last Tuesday near the intersection of Parkinson Drive opposite Duck Lake, where it was involved in a three-vehicle collision.

The grandson was a front-seat passenger while Miller’s wife was in the backseat as their vehicle collided head-on with a southbound vehicle.

All three were deceased at the scene.

The BC Coroners Service and RCMP Traffic Services continue to investigate the crash.
