The West Kelowna RCMP is investigating a motor vehicle collision that occurred last evening.

At approximately 7:43 p.m. on February 1, 2022, West Kelowna RCMP officers responded to a motor vehicle collision on Highway 97 near Glenrosa Road in West Kelowna. When officers arrived on scene, they located a semi-truck and trailer on its side in the northbound lanes. The 36-year-old driver of the truck sustained minor injuries.

A Subaru Outback carrying two occupants was also involved in the collision. A 51-year-old man and 28-year-old woman travelling in the Outback were transported to Kelowna General Hospital by EHS with serious injuries.

The West Kelowna RCMP, along with Southeast District Central Okanagan Traffic Services (COTS) and an RCMP Collision Analyst were on scene conducting the investigation well into the night.

RCMP officers have cleared from the scene; however, the northbound lanes of Highway 97 in this area between Peachland and West Kelowna are still impacted as crews work to clean the highway. Motorists should expect lengthy delays during their commute this morning and avoid this area of Highway 97 if possible.

The investigation continues into the cause of the collision. Anyone who may have witnesses the collision or who may have dash camera footage of the collision is asked to contact the West Kelowna RCMP at (250) 768-2880.
