Hwy 97 crash was fatal

A crash Friday night on Highway 97 on Peachland's Drought Hill was fatal.

The single-vehicle crash occurred at about 7 p.m. and claimed the life of an Okanagan man in his 40s, according to Cpl. Mike Halskov of the BC Highway Patrol.

"At this time, it appears driver impairment, failure to wear a seatbelt and using an electronic device while driving were contributing factors to this crash," Halskov added.

The highway was closed for several hours during the course of the investigation.
