Summerland RCMP report

Number of accidents increase and a stolen vehicle is recovered in the past week by Summerland RCMP

Highway 97 accident

Summerland RCMP were called to a vehicle rollover the evening of Sept. 16, near the Punta Norte turnoff.

Mounties said a pickup truck was driving southbound erratically and crossed the centre line colliding with Toyota Rav4 heading northbound. The pickup truck then went into the ditch overturning. The single occupant in the Rav4 suffered minor injuries and the driver of the pickup did not receive any. RCMP said both parties were lucky to escape unscathed and that the investigation is continuining as alcohol is believed to be involved.

Head-on collision

Summerland RCMP assisted in a head-on collision on Highway 40 between Princeton and Summerland on Sept. 11 at 2:30 p.m. RCMP said one of the vehicles entered into a curve too fast on the gravel road and lost control. One driver was transported to hospital.

Stolen vehicle recovered

A white 1995 Mazda pickup truck abandoned on Shale Avenue turned out to be a stolen vehicle.

RCMP said they received a call that the truck had been sitting there a few days. Penticton RCMP were then contacted and had the truck towed away.
