A 67-year-old Summerland woman has been identified as the victim of a fatal motor vehicle incident last week on the Okanagan Connector.

Margery May Fox was riding in the rear seat of an SUV that crashed on Highway 97C near Merritt around 3:50 p.m. on Dec. 27, according to a B.C. Coroners Service press release.

Road conditions were icy when the SUV left the road and rolled down a 20-metre embankment just east of the Aspen Grove turn-off, the release stated.

Fox was taken by ambulance from the crash scene to hospital in Merritt, where she died later that day.

The coroners service did not reveal the SUV driver’s identity, nor the condition of the other vehicle occupants, but noted the Fox family had asked for privacy.

RCMP are still investigating.
