High speed crash into tree
Two people have been taken to Kelowna General Hospital after their car cruised through an intersection and hit a tree.
RCMP on the scene say the car was traveling at a high rate of speed.
"We got word of a high speed crash witnessed by an ambulance at the intersection of Enterprise Way and Hwy. 33," explained Cst. Chris Neid.
He says the vehicle was moving west on Hwy. 33., an ambulance was stopped at the red light to turn left onto Enterprise Way when the car blew past them up onto the opposing bank.
"This little Chevrolet Cruz was coming westbound at a high rate of speed. Witnesses say they saw the tire smoking so there is a possibility that there was brake and acceleration at the same time," says Neid.
There were two elderly people in the car, a man and woman, who were both taken hospital with undetermined injuries.
Cst. Neid says this intersection is a common problem area.
