Car crashes into Bulk Barn

UPDATE 3:30 P.M.

West Kelowna Fire Rescue reports there were no serious injuries in the collision, but that the store suffered damage to a large window on the front side of the building, as well as some damage to merchandise.


ORIGINAL 2:30 P.M.

A 70-year-old man was trapped in his vehicle after crashing into the Bulk Barn in West Kelowna.

According to RCMP, the man crashed his red sedan into the front of the store shortly before 2 p.m.

Emergency crews took some time figuring out a safe way to remove the car and the man from the store as there was a risk of glass collapsing on the vehicle and the driver.

The man was reportedly extricated from his vehicle and appeared to not be suffering from any life-threatening injuries.

The car was also removed from the store.

While the identity of the man is not yet known, the car does have Alberta plates.

We will have more details as soon as they are available.
