The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a woman who died following an airplane crash near Crawford Bay on Saturday (August 30) as Jane Yvonne Lavallee, aged 48, of Edmonton, Alberta.

Lavallee was a passenger in a single-engine Cessna 172S airplane which, at about 6:30 p.m. on Saturday crashed on what appeared to be an aborted landing attempt at the airstrip at Crawford Bay, a small community on the east shore of Kootenay Lake north of Creston.

The aircraft came down on the sixth fairway of the Kokanee Springs Golf Course.

Passersby were able to extricate Lavallee from the wreckage, but she was not able to be resuscitated.

The BC Coroners Service and Transportation Safety Board continue to investigate this death.

The family of Lavallee has been notified of her death.
