Port Hardy is investigating a fatal collision on Highway 19.

On February 16, 2024, Port Hardy RCMP responded to the 395 km marker on Highway 19 after receiving a report of a two-vehicle head-on collision. Initial evidence suggested that a brown Ford F350 was travelling northbound on Highway 19 when it collided with a green dump truck that was travelling southbound.

Unfortunately, the driver of the Ford F350 died at the scene. The driver of the dump truck was transported to hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation into the cause of the collision continues, however impairment is not believed to have played a factor in the collision.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Port Hardy RCMP at 250-949-6335.
