Peachland Mounties are investigating the cause of a single-vehicle rollover that killed two and sent two more to hospital last night.

Emergency crews responded to the crash last night at 10:53 p.m.

A Chevrolet pickup truck had been traveling northbound on Princeton Avenue when the driver lost control and the vehicle rolled several times.

The driver, a 20-year-old Peachland man, and one passenger, a 17-year-old West Kelowna female, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The other two passengers, a 19-year-old Peachland man and a 16-year-old West Kelowna female both suffered serious, potentially life-threatening injuries. They were both rushed to Kelowna General Hospital by BC Ambulance Service personnel.

As of last night, the two remained in serious to critical condition.

The cause of the crash is not yet known but police continue to investigate and are assisting the BC Coroner’s Service. According to the initial scene assessment, road condition appears to have been a factor.
