The B.C. Coroners Service has identified two men who died following an industrial motor vehicle incident near Cranbrook on Tuesday.

Murray Neil Fadden, 36, of Dryden, Ontario, and Larry John Chorneyko, 58, of Arran, Saskatchewan, were pronounced dead at an accident scene 16 kilometres outside of the city after their Mini Mack truck crashed and overturned.

Fadden and Chorneyko, employed by a Swansea Ridge Quarry, were driving on a mine site access road that ran parallel to a conveyor. With Fadden behind the wheel and Chorneyko as the passenger, the truck lost control at the bottom of the track on a steep descent.

The B.C. Coroners Service and the B.C. Inspector of Mines continue to investigate these deaths.
