Two Whitehorse residents were killed in a motor vehicle accident on Tuesday afternoon.

Rhonda Rose Carlick, 31, and John Magoon, 43, were found dead at the scene of the accident, north of Jake’s Corner.

Both the driver and passenger were thrown from the vehicle, said police.

“They were driving a fairly new vehicle with a sturdy cab,” said Cpl. Dustin Rusk of the Teslin RCMP.

“The sad truth is that if they had been wearing their seatbelts then it could have been a different story.”

The driver of the pick-up truck lost control and the vehicle rolled six metres down the steep embankment of the Alaska Highway, said police.

Alcohol and speed as possible factors in the crash given the dry road conditions and the large amount of liquor found strewn about the scene, said police.
