Kelowna crash kills one, causes road closure

July 25, 2021 - 7:52 AM

The Kelowna RCMP is asking motorists to avoid the area of Springfield Road between Burtch Road and Dayton Street and use an alternative route following a serious, early morning crash.

Mounties responded July 25 just after 3. a.m to a report of a single-vehicle crash near the intersection of Springfield Road and Burtch Road in Kelowna.

"When officers arrived, they found the vehicle had suffered extensive damage, and one of occupants was deceased," RCMP said in a press release from Const. Solana Paré.

"The other occupant was transported to hospital by Emergency Health Services with serious, life threatening injuries. RCMP are working to determine the cause of the collision."

Due to the severity of the collision, the area of Springfield Road between Burtch Road and Dayton Street is closed until the scene investigation is complete.

More updates will be released as they become available.
