KELOWNA – RCMP say speed was a factor in a car crash in Kelowna Friday night which killed one of the drivers.

A 21-year-old Kelowna woman died when her Toyota sedan was hit head-on by a speeding Honda coupe as it rounded a curve on McCurdy Road East near Morrison Road around 10:15 p.m., May 23, according to a RCMP media release.

Witnesses told police the driver of the Honda, a 27-year-old man, was exceeding the speed limit.

The woman died at the scene, while the Honda driver has non-life threatening injuries to his back and neck, police say.

Both drivers were the only occupants in their cars.

A RCMP traffic reconstructionist is investigating.

The name of the woman killed won’t be released until her family is notified.
