The second collision  took place  south of 100 Mile House  on Highway 97 near Ainsworth Road shortly after 1 in the afternoon.

According to witnesses, a southbound Mini made a U-turn in the middle of the road and was struck on the passenger side by a Northbound SUV.

The passenger in the minivan, a 68 year old woman, from Vancouver, was pronounced deceased at the scene and the drivers of each vehicle were sent to hospital with serious but believed to be non-life threatening injuries. Names have not been released.

Always tragic, the sudden loss of life.
