Crash sends child to hospital

RCMP have confirmed eight people were taken to hospital following a two vehicle collision on highway 97 at Ross road, Thursday evening.

According to witnesses, a southbound Toyota Echo was attempting to make a left-hand turn onto Ross Road when it was struck on the passenger side by a northbound Chevy van.

Cst. Kris Clark says the sole occupant of the Toyota and seven occupants aged 37, 36, 10, 6, 4, 2 and 1 were all assessed by paramedics at the scene and subsequently transported to hospital with minor injuries as a precaution.
The driver of the Toyota, a 20-year-old Kelowna woman, was issued a violation ticket for failing to yield.

Three adults and an infant were taken to hospital following a two vehicle MVA on highway 97 at Ross road.

The incident happened just before 7 p.m. and closed both north bound lanes of the highway while emergency crews attended the scene.

A woman is reported to have spinal injuries. The injuries of the child and two other adults are not known.

Castanet will have more information as it becomes available.
