SUV drives into Okanagan Falls playground

SUV hits playground

The Okanagan Falls John Bell playground has been damaged after an SUV drove into the structure.

On June 7, just before midnight, RCMP responded to a report that a vehicle had collided with the playground on 7th Avenue. The SUV and its owner were at the scene when police arrived.

The owner of the vehicle told police that he was not driving at the time of the collision, and the actual driver had fled. However, the owner wouldn’t tell police who was driving.

Police said no witnesses could identify who was driving during the crash, and the SUV has since been towed.

An estimate of damages isn’t ready yet, but RCMP said they are continuing to investigate.

Anyone with information about the incident, or who had been driving at the time of the crash, is being asked to call the Penticton RCMP at 250-492-4300.
