Local couple, teacher killed in crash

A teacher and an area couple who died in a crash on a B.C. highway have been identified.

An SUV carrying four adults home from a ski trip collided head-on with a semi truck near Kamloops Sunday morning.

The driver, 55-year-old Brian Warick, was killed instantly. His wife was rushed to a Kamloops hospital, where she is in serious condition.

An Edmonton couple, Lizabeth MacDonald, 52, and David MacDonald, 57, were also killed.

The SUV was travelling north on Highway 5, two kilometres north of Heffley Creek, B.C., when it hit the southbound truck. Speed, alcohol and road conditions have been ruled out as factors.

The 57-year-old driver of the rig was not injured and has not been charged. Further investigations to determine if the truck experienced mechanical failure are being conducted.

Lizabeth worked as an accountant for Hahn and Company Chartered Accountants, and David was a Greyhound bus driver. The couple had three children.

Warick was a chemistry teacher at Ross Shepard High School.
