Kaleden man injured in snowy crash

A 39 year old Kaleden man is in hospital with serious injuries after a two vehicle crash in Peachland during Tuesday's snowstorm..

About 4 p.m., West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a head-on collision on Highway 97 at North Beach Road.

Apparently a Ford flat-deck truck was northbound on the highway when it lost control in slushy and slippery conditions.

The truck spun twice and crossed all oncoming lanes.

A southbound Pontiac Grand Prix  travelling in the curb lane impacted the side of the truck, causing the truck to overturn onto its side before both vehicles came to a rest in the ditch.

The driver of the truck was not overtly injured but the driver of the Pontiac suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries and was transported to hospital by BC Ambulance Service paramedics.

No charges have yet been laid.

Road conditions appeared to be a contributing factor in the crash.
