A man ejected from his black vintage Ford truck Monday morning  is expected to recover.

The Kelowna RCMP received a report of a single vehicle collision on Highway 97 near Duck Lake, May 28  at 6:40 a.m.

“A black vintage Ford pickup was southbound on the highway when it apparently lost control and impacted a concrete barrier,” said Const. Kris Clark.

“The driver, a 33 year old Lake Country man, was ejected from the vehicle  landing in a field at the bottom of a steep embankment.”

He suffered serious injuries from the crash but police where told that he is expected to recover.

Police suspect a mechanical failure contributed to the crash.

The West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a single vehicle rollover on Highway 97C at Renfrew Road,  May 27  at 2:52 p.m.

“A blue Dodge Dakota had overturned and entered the Okanagan Lake before coming to a rest in about five-feet of water,” said Const. Kris Clark.

“The two occupants, both 17 year old boys from Peachland, were able to get out of the vehicle and were apparently unharmed.”

The young driver was ticketed for driving without consideration.
