Man killed in ATV accident near Big Lake, east of Williams Lake

On Friday July 24 at 1:43 a.m., Williams Lake RCMP were called to the scene of a fatal crash in the 5000 Block of Ridge Road in Big Lake.

A local man had been out checking fences along his property and when he failed to return, family went looking for him and came across the crash scene.

The 62-year-old man was found under the ATV he was operating. It appeared that the ATV had driven through a mud hole and rolled over, trapping the man underneath.

The RCMP and BC Coroners Services are investigating but there does not appear to be anything suspicious related to the death.
