Police were called to two highway accidents near Summerland on the evening of Dec. 9.

At 4:50 p.m., emergency crews were called to a head-on collision on Highway 97 near Arkell Road.

A motorist travelling south collided with a motorist in the oncoming lane travelling north.

An 83-year-old Summerland woman had to be extracted from the vehicle. She was then taken to hospital in Penticton.

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.

Sgt. Stephane Lacroix of the Summerland RCMP detachment said driving conditions were good on Wednesday evening.

“Road conditions were not a factor and alcohol was not a factor in either accident,” he said.
