PENTICTON - A single vehicle crash in Okanagan Falls late, last week killed the driver.

Penticton RCMP media spokesperson Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says on Friday, Nov. 18, a vehicle struck a building in the South Okanagan community.

After coming to a complete stop on Highway 97 at Willow Street, witnesses say the vehicle shot across the highway, then a large field and hit a fence, before smashing into a modular home so hard it was knocked off the foundation. A propane tank was also knocked off its base.

The elderly driver was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead, Wrigglesworth says.
