April 22, 2013 - 1:56 PM

One man is in critical condition and another suffered serious injuries after a head-on collision early this morning.

Two vehicles struck head on around 4:40 a.m. on Glenmore Road near Slater Road. A 42-year-old West Kelowna man is in critical condition and a 50-year-old Lake Country man suffered serious injuries. Their two vehicles struck head-on and the northbound driver was trapped in his vehicle. The other driver was found to be walking around the scene and appeared dazed from the impact. The Kelowna Fire Department extricated the West Kelowna man from his vehicle and both men were rushed to hospital. 

The road was blocked while police conducted a scene survey. Analysis of the data is not yet complete but speed and wet road conditions appear to have been factors in the crash.
