One person is dead after a crash between a car and a commercial tractor trailer, west of Revelstoke on the Trans Canada highway. RCMP say it happened just before 6  last night, just west of the Enchanted Forest theme park. Police say the car and truck smashed into each other so hard the driver of the car likely died right away. The driver of the truck managed to escape without injuries. Both vehicles caught fire soon after and were completely destroyed. Although it was foggy at the time police say its unclear what caused the crash.
They are asking for any witnesses to contact them.

Kamloops teen found not criminally responsible in fathers death


Questions are being raised about the treatment a Kamloops teen got shortly before he murdered his father. Yesterday a judge ruled Joshua Steel was not criminally responsible for killing his father because of a mental disorder. Joshua Steel killed his father Phil in September of 2011 after being in and out of hospital, and will now be returned to the forensic psychiatric hospital in Port Coquitlam. The court heard how Steel suffered from schizophrenia and depression, but his family says he didn't get the treatment he really needed. Outside the court, Joshua's mother Amy sobbed as she complained that no one wanted to listen to the family's calls for help, and doctors kept sending her son home.
