A man in his mid-60s died after rolling his pickup truck on Meades Creek Road last week.

B.C. Coroner Barb McLintock said the man, who is from the area, was the only victim in the single-vehicle accident that occurred at approximately 5 p.m. on Friday.

She said he died before emergency personnel could transport him to the hospital, though a helicopter landed to take him for medical care.

McLintock said the investigation into the accident is continuing.
