High-end super car demolished in South Okanagan crash

A 2016 Mclaren 570S was destroyed in a single vehicle collision on Highway 3 near Osoyoos, Thursday, Sept. 28, 2017.

OSOYOOS - Investigators say speed was a factor in the crash of a super car near Osoyoos last night.

RCMP says two men from the Lower Mainland suffered non life-threatening injuries after crashing a 2016 McLaren 570S on Highway 3 near Richter Pass Road west of Osoyoos around 6 p.m. yesterday, Sept. 28.

The high-end luxury car, worth roughly $200,000, was travelling eastbound when the driver lost control and it left the highway, according to an RCMP media release.

Sgt. Jason Bayda says the 28-year-old driver and his 50-year-old passenger were transported to hospital.

The early police investigation points to speed as a factor in the crash, which caused major damage to the vehicle.
