Slippery conditions cause several Kelowna crashes

Kelowna police are reminding motorists to slow down after responding to several accidents Friday morning.

Early morning snowfall, mixed with frigid conditions, have coated many city roads with a layer of ice, which has led to several collisions Friday morning.

Around 8 a.m. emergency crews attended a rollover on Glenmore Road near Galiano Road. Following that crash, Mounties set up along Glenmore to slow traffic down.

An hour later, crews responded to a crash on Highway 33 near Ziprick Road. That collision forced police to shut down Highway 33 for about 30 minutes to deal with the clean-up.

More unconfirmed reports of accidents throughout the city continue to come in.

"Police are requesting motorists to slow down and drive to the conditions," said Const. Kris Clark.
