A woman from Abbotsford was killed in a single vehicle collision near Vavenby early Monday morning.

Clearwater RCMP report that at 5:47 a.m., police received a report of a single vehicle collision on Highway 5 north of Vavenby.

A Clearwater Detachment member initially attended the scene and confirmed that a female passenger in the vehicle was deceased.

Clearwater ambulance also attended the scene and transported the driver and two passengers to the Clearwater hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Initial investigation reveals that the driver, who was southbound on Highway 5, appears to have fallen asleep. The vehicle went into the northbound lane and off the road to the left into the ditch.

It appears that the deceased was not wearing her seat belt and as a result was ejected from the vehicle.

A traffic analyst from Kamloops and a representative from the B.C. Coroner’s service attended the scene. The investigation has been turned over to the Central Interior Traffic Services Unit out of Clearwater.

The deceased has been identified as Jenny Terese Klassen of Mount Lehman, B.C.

This matter is still under investigation.
