Accident claims life of Okanagan Falls woman

RCMP dive team members retrieved the lifeless body of an Okanagan Falls woman from Vaseux Lake on Thursday.

The 44-year-old woman drove her 1996 Pontiac Grand Am off Highway 97 and into Vaseux Lake around 2:30 p.m. RCMP said attempts by citizens, police, fire and ambulance personnel to extricate her were unsuccessful as the car had sank.

The RCMP dive team attended later that night and the vehicle and woman were found. No other vehicles or people were involved in the crash.
