Crash reduces Penticton’s parkway to single lane both directions

There do not appear to have been any serious injuries from the crash

The Channel Parkway has been reduced to a single lane of traffic in both directions after a two-vehicle crash at the Canadian Tire turnoff Thursday morning.

It isn’t clear how the crash occurred, but a grey-blue SUV was seen with fairly major damage to the exterior, with less significant damage to a red truck’s front passenger side at the scene.

An ambulance attended the scene, but no patients were seen entering the emergency vehicle. It does not appear any significant injuries resulted from the crash.

Police attended the crash and were speaking to people on scene just before noon.
