The BC Coroners Service says the logging truck driver killed Thursday afternoon in a crash on a Harrison Lake forest service road was from Sardis.
Steven James Reid, 43, was killed when his truck crashed into a large tree 15 kilometres up East Harrison Lake Forest Service Road.
According to Worksafe BC communications officer Megan Johnston, Reid had no control of his truck before the crash.
"We understand, at this point, that [the crash] involved a runaway truck," Johnston told the Times.
The crash took place about 15 kilometres up the road, Johnston said.
Worksafe BC has begun an investigation into the incident, as have RCMP.
