A truck rolled over near Vaseux Lake on Dec. 17 and the Okanagan Falls Fire Department was called to assist, extracting the occupants of the vehicle. The occupants were taken to hospital. The amount of occupants and their condition are unknown.

A single vehicle rollover occurred at Lawrence Avenue in Sendero Canyon the same day. Two males in the Subaru Legacy were transported to Penticton Regional Hospital. One man was stable while the other is in serious condition, RCMP said. A cyclist and a vehicle collided at the intersection of Main Street and Industrial Avenue also on Dec. 17. The driver of the vehicle made a right turn at the intersection colliding with the male who was riding his bike on the sidewalk. The cyclist was wearing a helmet and minor injuries were suffered.

Another collision occurred at the intersection of Orchard Avenue and Eckhardt Avenue on Dec. 17, with a Dodge Neon colliding with a power pole. The driver was attended to by ambulance crews and driven home by police.

Also on Dec. 17 a Ford Mustang was driving northbound on Highway 97 and lost control of the vehicle hitting the barrier on the highway. A second vehicle hit the Mustang as it bounced off the barrier. There were no injuries in that incident.
