Kaleden man injured in snowy crash
Jan 9, 2013 / 3:54 pm
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.
