A Comox Valley woman has passed away after being involved in a motor vehicle collision.

RCMP responded to the scene earlier this week in the 4400 block of Highway 19A near Royston, according to Constable Don Sinclair.

Sinclair says the 40-year-old victim ran into a pickup truck traveling Northbound and then hit a second vehicle also moving Northbound.

Sinclair says one of the other drivers involved suffered slight chest pains and was brought to St. Joseph’s Hospital. The road was closed for a brief period of time but has since been reopened.

The RCMP continue their investigation.
