The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died following a motor vehicle incident July 22 on Oyama Lake Road as Samuel Marienus Waldron, aged 17, of Winfield.
Waldron was driving a pickup truck at excessive speed for the narrow, winding road when his truck careened down a steep switchback enbankment, according to police.
The vehicle left the road and rolled down an embankment.
While Waldron was found deceased at the scene, a 17-year-old youth from Germany, a passenger in the vehicle, was taken to Kelowna General Hospital in critical condition and subsequently transferred to a hospital in Vancouver.
The BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate this death.
