June 23, 2020 - 9:56 AM

Police are investigating after a vehicle collided with a pole in Kelowna yesterday.

At around 3:45 p.m. yesterday, June 22, Kelowna RCMP were called to the 4000 block of Lakeshore Road near Crighton Road when a Pontiac struck a telephone pole.

The adult female driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle and was transported to hospital with serious injuries.

The area was closed to traffic for several hours while RCMP processed the scene.

“The investigation, which is being led by the Kelowna RCMP Municipal Traffic Section is still ongoing at this time,” Kelowna RCMP Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy said in a release. “Preliminary findings at the scene suggest that speed was likely a factor in the crash.”

Anyone who witnessed the collision or has any information is urged to contact the Kelowna RCMP Municipal Traffic Section at 250-762-3300.
