A woman is in hospital after crashing her scooter at the intersection of Richter and Doyle Wednesday morning.
The incident happened just before 9 a.m., after the woman, who was headed north on Richter, tried to make a left turn onto Doyle.
Her kickstand, which was down on the scooter, caught the pavement and sent the rider into a light post.
Cst. Brydon says the victim, a 50-year-old Kelowna woman, complained of back pain and a hurt ankle.
No other vehicles were involved.
