A Ferrari was totalled in a crash Friday evening outside Kelowna’s Elk Stadium.
Witnesses say the black sports car crashed into a GMC truck parked outside the stadium on Recreation Avenue. The Ferrari was traveling well over the speed limit when it crashed, said witnesses.
The male driver of the Ferrari, which was bearing Alberta plates, walked away from the crash with minor scrapes and bruises. A female passenger was taken to hospital, although the ambulance left the scene without sirens on.
The truck that the Ferrari crashed into belongs to a baseball player who was playing at the nearby diamond. It likely prevented the Ferrari from hitting a tree or a person on the sidewalk.
Crews were in clearing stages of the crash by 5:45 p.m.
Police at the scene refused to comment. Castanet will request more info from RCMP.
The Kelowna Falcons are scheduled to play the Kamloops Northpaws at Elk Stadium tonight at 6:35 p.m. and the area was busy at the time of the crash.
