UPDATE: The victim has been identified by B.C. Coroners Service as Angela Elizabeth Johnson, 28, of Cluculz Lake.

VANCOUVER - An ATV crash near Clucluz Lake, 40 kilometres southeast of Vanderhoof, B.C., has killed a woman who was six months pregnant.

RCMP say the woman was pinned under the all-terrain vehicle on Saturday afternoon when it flipped.

The death was one of six in five separate weekend incidents across the province, including collisions in Kelowna and Saanich that killed motorcyclists.

A 25-year-old Saanich man died late Saturday night in that Victoria suburb when his machine hit a tree, and in Kelowna, a 32-year-old was killed when his motorcycle slammed into a turning car.

The Kelowna crash also killed the driver of the car and critically injured the passenger, while just hours earlier, a jaywalker was hit and killed on a dark road in Kelowna's Rutland neighbourhood.

On Sunday, a pickup truck driver did not survive when he lost control of his Ford F350 and slammed into trees just north of Prince George, with that crash and both motorcycle fatalities blamed on speed. (Global, CFAX, CKQQ)
