Two in hospital after weekend rollover

Two young women were taken to Penticton General Hospital Saturday evening with non-life threatening injuries after their car lost control and flipped on Highway 3A.

Kaleden Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Graham Burke says the woman were heading westbound on Highway 3A about two kilometres west of the Hwy. 97 junction when they flipped.

Fire was called to the scene about 8 p.m. on Saturday evening. 

The woman told him they lost control on loose gravel which caused them to swerve across the road, hit the guard rail, and flip.

Burke says both women were taken to hospital, but had managed to get themselves out of the vehicle, with help from a friend in a car behind them , before emergency personnel arrived.
