Another crash on Hwy 97

UPDATE: 4:10 p.m.

Photos from the scene of a serious crash in Peachland this afternoon show a silver four-door sedan with heavy damage.

The crash happened on Highway 97, close to where a landslide covered the highway earlier this winter.

The sedan came to rest in the northbound lane of the two-lane stretch, beside the shore of Okanagan Lake.

At least one person was being treated on a stretcher by paramedics.

A pickup with light rear-end damage was also at the scene, though details of the crash and any injuries are unknown at this time.

Highway 97 was blocked for hours this morning near Gorman Bros. mill in West Kelowna after a northbound truck jack-knifed and crashed into an SUV headed in the opposite direction.
