A Kelowna man who lives at the intersection of Gordon Drive and Cameron Avenue has shared a video of a crash caught on his security camera.

Samer Shehadeh tells Castanet the crash happened just before 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29.

"We heard it as it happened, the whole house shook, and then I just checked the cameras and saw that we got it on camera," Shehadeh says.

After he heard the crash and checked to see what had happened he went across the street to see if he could help and had a conversation with the police officer on the scene.

"(The driver) was going really quick. Went through a red light. They hit the street sign and the light post. They both came down. And basically what I was told was, anyone who was crossing the street or at the bus stop waiting for a bus, would have instantly died."

"I went across the street and spoke with the constable and showed the video and he was very happy because it shows the guy running a red light," Shehadeh said.

Shehadeh says the vehicle came to rest between a tree and the fence, he didn't know the condition of the driver but said he believed there was only one person in the vehicle at the time of the collision.
