A 25-year-old man from Duncan was killed late Thursday night after a single-vehicle accident on Osborne Bay Road.

The B.C. Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died as Kyle Jonathan Adams,  25, of Duncan.

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP received a call just before midnight from a resident who heard a crash.

A passenger on the roadway led police to a ravine where a vehicle was found with a driver trapped inside.

The B.C. Ambulance Service and Crofton Fire Department attended but the driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

A traffic reconstructionist and the Coroner attended at the crash location. From the initial stages of the investigation, it's been determined the vehicle was heading south on Osborne Bay Road and failed to negotiate a curve.

The passenger was treated for minor injuries and released at the scene.

The B.C. Coroner's Office is investigating.
