Early morning crash in Kelowna sends two to hospital with serious injuries

A 42-year-old West Kelowna man is in critical condition and another suffered serious injuries after a head-on collision early Monday morning.

At 4:40 a.m. this morning, Kelowna RCMP responded to reports of a multiple car-accident on Glenmore Road near Slater Road, past the turn off for McKinley Landing.

Two vehicles hit head-on, trapping the individual from West Kelowna in his car in the northbound lane.

A 50-year-old man from Lake Country, the other driver, was walking around the scene and appeared dazed from the impact, when emergency crews arrived.

The Kelowna Fire Department extricated the man who was trapped and both individuals were rushed to hospital.

The road was blocked while police conducted a scene survey. Analysis of the data is not yet complete, but information from police indicates speed and wet road conditions appear to have been factors in the crash.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Central Okanagan Traffic Services, Cst DOANE at 250-980-5353.
