Local man facing charges after crash kills mother of four

February 14th, 2024

On Oct. 1, 2022 at 5 p.m., there was a fatal head-on collision on Hwy 22 near Trail. The collision involved a F350 pickup, driven by 56-year-old Terry Jackson, and a Chevrolet Traverse driven by a 34-year-old mother with her four young children. The mother and children were all transported to Trail Regional Hospital where the mother tragically passed away. The children were treated for serious injuries and released from hospital.

The Trail RCMP initially responded to the incident, but the BC Highway Patrol in Nelson took conduct of the investigation due to the severity of the collision. After an extensive investigation, Terry Jackson has been charged with one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and two counts of dangerous operation causing bodily harm.

Jackson’s first court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 29, 2024 at the Rossland Courthouse.
