Crash in Lake Country hospitalizes two women

Two Vernon women, ages 18 and 57, are in hospital for non-life threatening injuries following a crash at a Lake Country intersection shortly before 5:30 Thursday evening.

Police investigators believe the 18-year-old woman, who was driving a brown Buick sedan, was travelling east on Oceola Road when she collided with the 57-year-old woman’s red Dodge pickup truck, which was headed north on Highway 97. The force of the impact sent the pickup truck flipping over onto its side.

The 57-year-old woman’s dog, which was in her vehicle at the time, has been reported as uninjured in the crash.

Any witnesses to the crash, particularly those who may have dash cam footage from it, are asked to contact the Lake Country RCMP at 250-766-2288.
