WEST KELOWNA - A vehicle heading south on Highway 97 just outside of West Kelowna is on its roof in the ditch after the driver lost control this morning.

A driver exiting the Okanagan Connector for the Okanagan Highway lost control and rolled the vehicle, coming to rest on the roof Tuesday morning, Dec. 22.

The single vehicle crash happened just before 10 a.m. at the turnoff. A witness says he doesn't think anyone was injured but RCMP and West Kelowna Fire Rescue could not be reached for confirmation.

Drive B.C. is reporting compact snow in the area.

Traffic at the turnoff has not been affected.

LETTER: Not impressed, Mr. Dyas
  OPINION I’m already weary of Tom Dyas’s attacks throwing Kelowna City staff, council, and Mayor Colin Basran under the bus. To lead a city as mayor, it takes the ability to collaborate and work as a team.
