Curiosity in crash causes two more

Driver inattention has been determined as the cause of  multiple traffic accidents that happened early this morning.

West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a three-vehicle crash on highway 97 near Bartley Road just after 7:30 a.m.

According to Cst. Kris Clark, a dog running into traffic distracted one driver, causing him to rear-end another, pushing the second vehicle into the third.

While officers were dealing with that crash, another accident occurred in the same vicinity when one driver rear-ended another. That person told police he was looking at the original accident scene and not paying attention to the road.

A third crash involving three vehicles occurred around 8:30 a.m., and was very similar in nature to the first incident, with the cause determined to be a lack of attention.

Several vehicles were no longer driveable and had to be removed, but no one was overtly injured.
