A woman has died after being struck by a vehicle along Highway 97 between 18th and 22nd Avenues near the College of New Caledonia (CNC).

Prince George RCMP confirm the victim was a student; 47-year-old Michelle Dac has been charged with impaired driving causing death

“We’re offering extensive counselling support for students and staff and the college community has set up a memorial for the student. Right now, it’s been a very traumatic event for not only the students who witnessed it and the classmates, but also our staff as well.”
