“Witnesses at the scene told police that a grey Pontiac Sunfire, travelling along Byland Road, was struck on its passenger side by a white Kia Sportage which had been travelling along Bartley Road,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, with the RCMP.

“Police believe that the driver of the Pontiac Sunfire failed to come to a complete stop at the stop sign before entering the intersection. The driver and passenger of that vehicle (Pontiac Sunfire), a man and a woman, were each transported to the hospital for further medical assessment of what police believe to be non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Kia Sportage was medically assessed and released at the scene by emergency paramedics.”


A car crash happened this morning at the intersection of Byland Road and Bartley Road in West Kelowna, according to witness reports.

Police and fire crews responded to the scene, which occurred during rush hour traffic between 9:30 and 10 a.m.
