Due to the heavy damage sustained to the vehicle, police and emergency personnel were on scene for several hours as the two deceased men – a 23-year-old from Port Hastings and a 27-year-old from Troy – were removed from the vehicle.

An RCMP Traffic Analyst was called to the scene to assist with the investigation. Highway 4 was closed for several hours and traffic was detoured, however the RCMP confirmed that the road is now open.
