Traffic was temporarily disrupted on Old Okanagan Highway this morning after an SUV rear-ended a transit bus stopped to take on passengers at about 9:30 a.m.

The northbound SUV, driven by a female, suffered serious front end damage from the collision, while the #24 bus was also put out of commission, requiring a second bus to be called in to transport the passengers.

A teenager getting on the bus at the time said she heard what she described as a “big smash” sound followed by a cloud of dust.

Fire and rescue, police and ambulance personnel responded to the scene but there were no serious injuries reported.
