Police have released few details only to say they are working to identify the body. The area around the ravine has been cordoned off and police say foul play has not been ruled out. Anyone who witnessed anything unusual in the Guerin creek area in lower Sahali is asked to call the police.

Another pedestrian accident in Kamloops

The string of pedestrian accidents continues in Kamloops. A 20 year old man is in critical condition at Royal Inland hospital after being hit by a vehicle Wednesday night. RCMP say around 6 o'clock the victim was crossing at a crosswalk on Westsyde road near Parkview drive. A westbound vehicle came around the corner hitting him and throwing him several feet.
The young man sustained serious head injuries and was taken to hospital. The 50 year old male driver stayed at the scene and police say he was released without charges. Staff Sergeant Fran Bethell says the cause of the crash is still to be determined and charges could still be laid against the driver.
