Rollover, vehicle fire and entrapment after crash at Kelowna intersection

October 22, 2016 - 8:59 AM

KELOWNA - Police, emergency crews and the fire department responded to a crash at a busy Kelowna intersection yesterday evening.

Cst. Jesse O’Donaghey says in a release that two people were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries following the crash.

Yesterday, Oct. 21, at 7:16 p.m., police responded to a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Harvey Avenue and Dilworth Drive. The fire department extracted a driver who was trapped inside a Chevrolet Impala while they put out the vehicle's engine fire, O’Donaghey says.

Early police investigations suggest the white Chevrolet Impala was headed westbound on Harvey Avenue and travelled through the intersection of Dilworth Drive on a yellow light. The Impala collided with an eastbound grey Toyota truck, turning left into the path of the car. The Toyota rolled onto its roof and the Impala then hit a light pole.

The driver of the Impala, a 20-year-old Kelowna man and the passenger of the Toyota, a 34-year-old West Kelowna Woman were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries, O’Donaghey says.

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash and charges have not yet been laid. Investigators are looking for more witnesses of the crash.
