Vehicle crashes everywhere

Emergency crews are attending a couple of collisions in the Okanagan, both single vehicle crashes as a result of slippery conditions.  

A small car slid off the road while trying to turn off Highway 97 in Winfield.  

An SUV skidded off the road into a concrete barrier in the northbound lanes of Highway 97 just south of Vernon around 10:30 a.m.  

Neither incident appears to have resulted in serious injuries.

Meanwhile, DriveBC is reporting that Highway 5 is closed northbound near Hope at Mine Creek.

Highways 1 and 3 can be used as alternate routes to the Interior.

Police are advising drivers to use extreme caution as the temperature hovers around the freezing mark making the roads very slippery.
