Update: Man confirmed dead in Shuswap crash

Vehicle goes over embankment in Seymour Arm Sunday night.

A man died Sunday night in the Shuswap when the vehicle he was in rolled down an embankment in the Seymour Arm area.

Chase RCMP report that when officers arrived, four people were in the vehicle that went off the Seymour Main Forest Service Road at the 38-kilometre marker.

It “rolled several feet down an embankment before coming to rest up against trees on the bank.”
