Multiple collisions on Highway 97 are slowing Thursday’s evenings commute.

Then just after 5 p.m. a multi-vehicle collision occurred at Highway 33 and 97.

A city bus, a truck and a car were reportedly involved in the crash.

According to a witness the bus clipped the back end of a truck that was turning, which caused the truck to spin around and come to rest on a median on Highway 33.

The bus, which had passengers on board, was headed to UBC Okanagan.

Injuries are not known at this time, however three ambulances are on scene.
