Update: 1:20 p.m.
It could have been far worse as a vehicle slid across Highway 97 into oncoming traffic and ended up in the ditch.
Brent Penner, Lake Country Fire Department deputy chief, said the single vehicle was heading southbound at about 10:30 a.m. when it ended up in the northbound ditch near Crystal Waters Road.
“The injuries sustained were very minor. The airbags deployed,” Penner said. “At the end of the day, that’s probably the best outcome for a car that crossed into the oncoming lane.”
The accident occurred as the Okanagan region experienced light snowfall of two to four centimetres.
No other vehicles were impacted as a result of this incident.
