The scene was closed for several hours as police investigated, but re-opened early this morning. Investigators are currently seeking any witnesses of the event and searching for any surveillance cameras around the area to try and determine what happened.

“While it is early in the investigation, drugs and alcohol are not factors in this crash,” Kelowna RCMP Cpl. Meghan Foster said.

“A woman who spoke with the responding paramedics identified herself as a witness to the crash. To advance this investigation, officers would like this woman to contact the Kelowna RCMP.”

Anybody with information regarding the accident is asked to call Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477. You can also leave a tip online at crimestoppers.net.
