SUV plunges into dark lake

A vehicle plunged into Okanagan Lake in Peachland Wednesday night.

The white SUV rolled into the lake off Highway 97 south of the Dragon Lotus Restaurant about 10:45 p.m.

All three occupants of the vehicle, two men and a woman, had managed to get themselves to shore by the time paramedics and firefighters arrived. All three were soaking-wet, freezing and confused, but on their own feet.

It wasn’t immediately clear who was behind the wheel or why the SUV crashed. There was some minor debris on the highway near the crash scene.

Roads were wet but clear at the time.
