September 28, 2015 - 3:38 PM

SALMON ARM - A single vehicle collision in the Shuswap Saturday evening sent a Lake Country man to hospital with head and internal injuries.

The vehicle struck a power pole in the 4700-block of Eagle Bay Road around 6:45 p.m., Sept. 26, causing the airbags to deploy and major damage to the vehicle.

First responders found the sole occupant of the vehicle, a 51-year-old from Lake Country, unconscious and suffering from head and suspected internal injuries. He was extracted and taken to hospital in Salmon Arm before being transported to Royal Inland Hospital for further treatment.

Salmon Arm RCMP continue to investigate and say alcohol has not yet been ruled out.
