Fatal accident under investigation

  • Nov. 10, 2011 8:00 a.m.

A 66-year-old Old Massett man died last Thursday evening (Nov. 3) after he was struck by a vehicle on Raven Avenue, in a tragic accident that Masset RCMP continue to investigate. Cpl. Andrew Baylis said police were called at 8:44 pm. The man, Harold Ingram, had been hit by a car as he crossed the street to get to his parked vehicle. Bystanders immediately tried to help him, and members of the Old Massett volunteer fire department quickly arrived on the scene. Mr. Ingram was rushed to the Massett hospital by BC Ambulance, where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead shortly after he was admitted, Cpl. Baylis said. The driver of the vehicle that hit Mr. Ingram stopped immediately and has been cooperating with the investigation, Cpl. Baylis said. Police have also interviewed several witnesses. The preliminary investigation has found that speed and alcohol were not factors in the accident, he said. Along with the Masset RCMP, the North District RCMP traffic reconstructionist, the vehicle inspector and the BC Coroner Service are continuing to investigate the cause of the accident. Masset RCMP thank everyone involved at the scene of the accident and who provided assistance and support to Mr. Ingram, Cpl. Baylis said. Anyone who has any information about this incident, who has not already spoken to police, is urged to contact the Masset RCMP detachment at 250-626-3991.
