KELOWNA - Emergency crews are at the scene of an overturned logging truck at Posthill Lake Road and Farmers Drive.

The truck hit a pole in the accident and Fortis B.C. has been called to restore power to two homes in the area.

Lt. Geoff Ross of Ellison Fire Deparment says speed could be a factor in the accident, noting the driver was turning a sharp corner when the truck overturned.

The driver of the truck escaped with non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to hospital as a precaution.
