Police were called following a single-vehicle accident on the Princeton-Summerland Road following a recent washout.
Penticton RCMP were called on April 16 at 1:08 a.m. to the accident once kilometre west of Mountain View Road in Faulder.
Heavy rains had caused a large portion of the road to wash away.
The washout was roughly six metres wide and six metres deep, with the sides washed away at a 90-degree angle.
The washout was the entire length of the road.
The driver of a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu, travelling west on the road, did not see the washout and went over the side, hitting the top of the opposite wall before falling to the bottom.
The driver and passenger were both able to walk out and call 911. They were transported to Penticton Regional Hospital.
The car remained at the bottom of the washout while Argo Road Maintenance crews waited for engineers to assess the safety of the road. Argo crews remained on the scene while the road was closed.
