Nanaimo RCMP are investigating a fatal accident in Cedar.
It happened on Gordon Road around 8:10am on Friday morning.
RCMP say the victim of the single vehicle crash was a man from Nanaimo but they aren’t offering any details about his age or identity until his extended family has been notified.
They say it looks like the driver losing control of his vehicle along the single lane gravel road, veered off and hit a tree. Investigators think speed was a contributing factor.
The Nanaimo Municipal Traffic Unit is investigating, with help from the BC Coroners Service.
