Sardis man killed in logging truck crash

Officials investigate braking system of logging truck that crashed on Harrison East logging road Thursday evening.

A 43-year-old Sardis man was killed in a logging truck accident Thursday.

The BC Coroners Service identified the logging truck driver Friday as Steven James Reid.

“Mr. Reid was the sole occupant and driver of a logging tractor-trailer which crashed into a large tree at Harrison East Road about 15 kilometres east of Harrison Lake,” Coroner Barb McLintock said in a news release.

She said the Coroners Service and WorkSafe BC continue to investigate the accident.

“The BC Coroners Service expresses its condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Reid,” she said.

Agassiz RCMP received a call at about 4 p.m. Thursday to attend an accident involving a runaway truck.

McLintock said the investigation will include a mechanical inspection of the truck’s braking system.
