On Aug. 27, police were called to a three-vehicle collision on Highway 97 north of Summerland.

The accident occurred at 7:55 a.m. when a 2008 Honda, travelling south, developed a flat tire.

The driver, a 59-year-old Peachland woman, parked on the shoulder and waited for a tow truck.

A 1997 Honda, also travelling south and driven by a 59-year-old Vernon man, did not see the first vehicle and collided with it.

A third vehicle, a 1997 GMC pickup, also travelling south and driven by a 49-year-old West Kelowna man, attempted to avoid the accident.

The truck collided with the two cars, crossed into the north lanes of traffic and flipped onto its side. The driver of the first vehicle had to be removed from her vehicle using the Jaws of Life.

Both car drivers were taken to hospital by ambulance, with non life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the truck was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Police, firefighters and ambulance attendants from Summerland were at the scene.

The highway was closed for around one hour following the accident.

Police are continuing to investigate this accident.
