Hwy 97C open after crash

UPDATE: 7:25 p.m.

A witness to Friday evening's crash scene on the Okanagan Connector says the collision involved only a single vehicle, and says it appeared the black sedan crashed into the centre median near Brenda Mines Road.

Allison Millar says it's unclear how many occupants were in the vehicle, but says traffic westbound was at a standstill for about 15 minutes until an ambulance left the scene, heading eastbound.

It's currently unclear what injuries the occupants may have sustained, nor what factored into the crash. 


ORIGINAL: 6:45 p.m.

A reported rollover forced a closure of the westbound lanes of the Okanagan Connector for about an hour, early Friday evening.

An incident at about 5:45 p.m., reportedly a rollover, shut down the highway heading west near Brenda Mines Road, about 25 kilometres west of West Kelowna.

DriveBC says one lane is now back open following the incident, and advises motorists to expect delays due to congestion.
