UPDATE: Peace Regional RCMP have confirmed that one man is dead following a collision between a CN Rail train and a Super B tractor trailer this morning in Nampa. The identity of the semi driver has not yet been identified as police are still notifying next of kin.
Emergency crews are dealing with the crash and derailment south of Peace River and a detour has been set up.
