Three car incident due to black ice

Kelowna police had to shut down a road for sanding, following a motor vehicle incident Sunday morning. 

The incident was a result of black ice. 

Three vehicles were involved in the accident which took place near the intersection of Summit Drive in the Dilworth area. 

A witness tells Castanet News that the first two vehicle's drivers lost control on the ice and hit each other. A third vehicle tried to avoid the collision and ended up going up on the sidewalk and hitting a tree. 

Police closed the road while it was sanded and de-iced. 

No major injuries were reported and all vehicles have been towed.
