Burnaby couple killed in crash near Revelstoke

A Burnaby couple has been identified as the victims in a fatal crash near Revelstoke July 20.

Lai Hing Wong, 74, and her husband, Tang Sing Ling, 75, were killed when the minivan they were in crashed on the Trans-Canada Highway around 2:30 p.m., about seven kilometres west of Revelstoke, says the BC Coroners Service.

Ling was driving and Wong was a rear-seat passenger. The single-vehicle accident saw the minivan, which was eastbound, go off the highway to the left and hit a large dirt embankment.

Wong died at the scene while her husband was flown by air ambulance to Kelowna General Hospital, where he died of his injuries the next day.

The BC Coroners Service and RCMP Traffic Services continue to investigate the deaths.
