West Kelowna fire crews are responding to reports of an injured mountain biker on the Smith Creek Road trail.
At around 10:15 a.m., crews received a call of a mountain biker with a hip injury about one kilometre up the trail at the end of Smith Creek Road.
The ambulance arrived on scene around 11:10 a.m.
Crews sent a four-wheel drive all terrain utility vehicle up the trail to get the injured mountain biker down safely. As of 11:10 a.m., the biker was still on the trail and has yet to be brought down.
This is the second time in a week that emergency crews have been called to this trail to help an injured mountain biker.
Just last week on Sunday (June 13), crews rescued a woman on the same trail. The woman was later brought to hospital with a leg injury.
