One person has died following a multi-vehicle crash in a parking lot Wednesday morning.
A Volkswagen Jetta crossed through the Vernon Square parking lot around 7 a.m. Aug. 30 and stopped after colliding with two parked vehicles, both of which were unoccupied.
“The driver, and lone occupant of the Jetta, lost consciousness shortly after the crash. Efforts to resuscitate the driver were unsuccessful and they were pronounced deceased at the scene,” said Vernon North Okanagan RCMP media relations officer Const. Chris Terleski.
Criminality is not suspected and the BC Coroners Service is conducting their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the person’s death.
No other injuries were reported.
