It was fender bender pandemonium in West Kelowna Tuesday afternoon as a series of crashes ground traffic to a halt on Highway 97.

In one accident, at a left hand turn lane, four vehicles smashed into each other at Hwy. 97 and Gellatly Road at around 12:30 p.m.; everyone was out of their vehicles by the time emergency crews arrived.

While emergency personnel were at the first accident, three more vehicles crashed into each other only metres away.

Only minor injuries were reported in both instances, but traffic was snarled on Highway 97 for over an hour.
