UPDATE: Two injured in vehicle rollover on Highway 33

Emergency crews are responding to a single vehicle rollover near Big White Road

UPDATE Nov. 24 9 a.m.

Road conditions may have played a role in a rollover collision which sent a man and woman to hospital with relatively minor injuries Thursday evening in Kelowna.

RCMP were called on Nov. 23 at 7:14 p.m.,to assist BC Ambulance Service who were responding to a report of a single vehicle rollover collision in the 13000 block of Highway 33 East just outside of Kelowna.

“Police have learned that the black Dodge Dakota pickup truck rolled over after its driver lost control of the vehicle, which sustained severe damage after it struck a highway speed sign and a tree before landing back on its wheels,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, in a press release.


Both occupants of the vehicle were able to extract themselves from the vehicle having each sustained relatively minor injuries. Both were transported to hospital as a precaution for a full medical assessment.

“Police ruled out alcohol as a factor in the crash,” said O’Donaghey. “Investigators believe that a dramatic drop in temperature, combined with wet roads, possibly led to black ice and poor road conditions.”

Witnesses to the crash who have not spoken to police you are asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.

UPDATE: 8:05 p.m.

A tow-truck has been called to Highway 33 to recover a single vehicle that left the road earlier Thursday night.

The condition of those in the vehicle is not known.


Emergency crews are reportedly headed up Highway 33 after an apparent single vehicle rollover.

The incident occurred about 7:30 p.m. near Schram Road about 5 km before the Big White Road turn off.

DriveBC is reporting periodic rain and 40 km/hr winds along Highway 33.

More to come.
