Sooke woman dies on ATV

Coroner is looking cause of death of 58-year-old woman on ATV

The BC Coroner Service has identified the woman who died following an ATV crash in Otter Point as Diane Louise Clark, 58.

According to the BC Coroner Service, Clark was driving an ATV on a narrow trail in Otter Point on the evening of Friday, Jan 12.

The weather was cold and the ground was frozen hard.

She made plans to meet with a friend, and when she did not arrive, the friend went to check the trail.

The friend found the ATV off the trail and overturned, and immediately called 911.

According to an RCMP press release, police were called to the 2000-block of King Road in Otter Point around 9 p.m.

Clark was found with the ATV overturned over her body on private property.

“Despite efforts by witnesses, EHS and firefighters, they could not revive the woman,” the release stated.

She was confirmed dead at the scene.

The BC Coroner Service is still investigating, with assistance from the RCMP.

“As long as we’re satisfied there’s no criminal element involved, this is turned over to the Corner Service,” said Staff Sgt. Steve Wright.

He said the coroner will look into a variety of factors, including the condition of the ATV, the toxicology of her blood, and the weather conditions at the time.

Clark was wearing goggles and a helmet at the time of the accident.
