A car ran into a lamppost where Abbott Street intersects with Highway 97, and it’s caused commuter traffic to back up all the way to Ross Road, in West Kelowna.
The commute from West Kelowna has taken nearly 45 minutes longer for many West Kelowna commuters, said a caller.
The lightstand was mostly cleared within the hour.
Authorities said the pole-rammer left after the collision.
