The fatal accident happened at a work site near Boundary and Second Avenue.
A piece of heavy equipment appears to have rolled down a hill, hitting and killing the victim. Although it’s still not clear how the equipment got loose and the victim has not been identified.
RCMP and WorkSafe BC are investigating.
