An 18 year old Quebec student who was visiting BC as part of a school group has been critically injured in a bus crash near Castlegar.
RCMP say the teen and 15 other Quebec students were aboard a transit bus near Castlegar last Thursday when the bus was side-swiped by a delivery van, severely injuring the teen who was sitting beside the window where the van hit.
The other students, who were taking part in a program at Selkirk College, kept their injured friend alive until help arrived and police say she has been transferred to hospital in Kelowna, where she remains on life-support but is not expected to survive.
Mounties are hoping the drivers of three vehicles that were just ahead of the bus on Highway 3A at about 4:30 last Thursday afternoon may have details that could determine why the van veered into the oncoming lane.
