A 74-year-old Quesnel man who was struck by a vehicle while assisting a stuck motorist has passed away.
The man suffered serious injuries and Quesnel RCMP now confirms that he succumbed to those injuries in the hospital.
Police responded to a report of a motor vehicle accident on Highway 97 south of Kersley back on December 30th.
RCMP say an F-350 pickup had gone off the road and into the ditch.
They say a couple of motorists had stopped and were attempting to pull the truck out of the ditch.
Police say a man that lived nearby also attended and was attempting to assist with traffic control before he was struck by a vehicle that was unable to stop in time due to limited visibility and icy road conditions.
