Fatal auto crash on Highway 33 near Kelowna Friday

A 33-year-old woman is dead and two others hospitalized after a car and pick-up collided at Cardinal Creek.

A 30 year old local woman died Friday in a head-on auto collision on Highway 33 at Cardinal Creek near Kelowna.

cording to police, at just after 9:30 a.m. officers were called to the scene where  they were told by witnesses an eastbound red Pontiac sedan appeared to have lost control and travelled into the oncoming lane, where it collided with a westbound red Dodge pickup, sending the pickup into the ditch.

A 24-year-old male and 22-year-old female in the Dodge, both from the Lower Mainland, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to Kelowna General Hospital.

The driver, and sole occupant of the sedan however, did not survive her injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Highway 33 was closed for two and a half hours Friday as emergency crews worked.

An RCMP traffic analyst conducted a thorough scene examination before the highway was re-opened. The police say more will be known about to the likely cause of the collision once the analyst’s investigation is completed.
