Tarp causes concern in Kelowna

Debris on the road prompts RCMP response

Reports of an accident on Highway 97 turned out to be a tarp.

A big black tarp in the northbound lane south of the turnoff to UBC-Okanagan prompted police presence.

“It was a hazard to traffic,” said Kelowna RCMP Const. Leslie Smith.

“We had members go explore that so there wouldn’t be a motor vehicle incident.”
