Dilworth accident snarls traffic

A two-vehicle collision leaves drivers shaken and leaves Dilworth blocked from Baron to Highway 97

  • Apr. 4, 2017 6:36 p.m.

A two-vehicle accident during the dinner hour Tuesday in Kelowna left a pair of drivers shaken and traffic backed up.

A white van was reportedly turning left from Dilworth onto Baron when it was T-boned by a vehicle moving northward, according to emergency crews at the scene.

Both vehicles were left badly damaged while the owner of the van, a dog trainer, reported that she felt lucky she did not have her own pet with her at the time.

The Capital News will pass on more information if it becomes available.
