Kevin Brian Campbell of Terrace lost his life in a collision involving three tractor trailer units

RCMP SAY the man killed in a truck collision yesterday is from Terrace.

Kevin Brian Campbell, 38, originally from Lax Kw’alaams, lost his life in a collision involving three tractor trailer units approximately 70km east of Prince Rupert on Hwy16.

The highway was closed for hours as investigators probed the cause.

Campbell was travelling east on Highway 16, approximately 70 kilometres east of Prince Rupert, in a commercial semi-truck, when his vehicle was involved in a collision with an oncoming, westbound commercial vehicle.

A third semi was unable to stop and crashed into the two.

The driver of the east bound semi was trapped and the Jaws of Life were used to extract him, said police.

An air ambulance transported Campbell to Prince Rupert Hospital where he died as a result of the injuries he sustained.

The other two drivers were transported to Mills Memorial Hospital by BC Ambulance for treatment of injuries received.

It was snowing and road conditions were poor,  says Sgt Pam Scott, NCO i/c West Pacific Region Traffic Services.

RCMP officers from both Prince Rupert and Terrace were at the scene as were members of Terrace and Prince Rupert fire and rescue teams.

It was snowing and road conditions were poor, says Sgt Pam Scott, NCO i/c West Pacific Region Traffic Services.

Hwy16 was closed into the early hours of yesterday evening.

As of early this morning, the highway is open to single lane alternating traffic.
