It is with deep regret that the BC Forest Safety Council notifies the forestry community of our seventh fatality in 2012. On Thursday, July 19th, a logging truck driver was fatally injured when the logging tractor-trailer crashed into a large tree at Harrison East Road about 15 km east of Harrison Lake.
No other persons or vehicles were involved in the incident. Although the exact cause of the incident is unknown, it serves as a reminder that driving on resource roads can be very hazardous. Review the following information with your crews, especially the drivers, to increase their focus on driving safely.
As more detail is made available, the Council will provide additional resources and information.
