CRESTON, B.C. - A woman who died in a plane crash north of Creston, B.C., was a resident of Edmonton.

Forty-eight-year-old Jane Lavallee was a passenger in a single-engine Cessna, which crashed while apparently trying to land at the airstrip at Crawford Bay, on the east shore of Kootenay Lake.

The BC Coroners' Service says people passing by were able to free Lavallee from the wreckage but she could not be resuscitated.

The Transportation Safety Board, along with the service, are investigating the crash, which happened on Aug. 30.
