Five inside flipped Jeep

“Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash and the vehicle was towed from the scene.”

Police do not believe alcohol was behind a rollover Sunday afternoon that sent one to hospital.

On April 2 at 5:38 p.m., West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a single-vehicle rollover collision on the 4400 block of Glenrosa Road.

Police have determined that five occupants were inside a green Jeep YJ when it flipped onto its roof in the parking lot of the Telemark Nordic Club.

“The driver, an 18-year-old West Kelowna man, did not report any injuries, while three of his four passengers sustained relatively minor non-life-threatening injuries as a result of the rollover,” says O’Donaghey.

One of those passengers was transported to hospital for further medical assessment.

“Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash and the vehicle was towed from the scene,” adds O’Donaghey.

“No charges have been laid at this time.”
