The driver of the other vehicle, a 31-year-old Summerland man, received minor injuries and was taken to hospital. The accident is under investigation.
The second accident occurred at 6:20 p.m. on Highway 97 near Lakeshore Drive when two pickup trucks, both travelling south collided when one veered into the other.
A Kelowna woman in her mid-20s was taken to hospital.
A Summerland man in his mid-70s was issued a ticket for driving without due care and not having a proper driver’s license.
