MONTE LAKE - Two men were left seriously injured after a head-on collision in the Monte Lake area early this morning.

Police say the crash happened Monday, Oct. 16 around 6:30 a.m. on Highway 97.

There were two vehicles involved, Cpl. Dan Moskaluk says in a release.

“B.C. Ambulance and local fire department crews attended to assist,” Moskaluk says. “Both drivers and lone occupants of the vehicles were transported to hospital, with one being airlifted by helicopter.”

Their injuries are described as “serious.”

Police believe a westbound grey 2006 Honda Civic driven by a 24-year-old Vernon area man crossed into the oncoming lane and collided with an eastbound white 2002 Ford Escape driven by a 58-year-old Barriere man.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
