Three-vehicle crash in Penticton sends one to hospital

The Penticton RCMP are looking to speak with anyone who may have witnessed the collision

A three-vehicle collision that occurred on the night of Dec. 10 at the intersection of Railway Street and Duncan Avenue has left one person in hospital.

Authorities believe that the collision, which occurred around 5:30 p.m., was the result of a vehicle attempting to turn left onto Duncan Avenue from Railway Street, but failed to yield to an oncoming vehicle travelling north on Railway Street.

“The vehicle travelling north on Railway Street was unable to stop in time, and collided with a vehicle turning left,” said Penticton RCMP Const. James Grandy.

“A third collision occurred from the vehicle travelling north spinning and colliding with a third vehicle, who was making a right turn onto Railway Street from Duncan Avenue,” he explained.

Grandy further explained that two of the three vehicles suffered extensive damage, and one of the drivers suffered injuries and was transported to hospital.

This collision is currently under investigation by Penticton Detachment Traffic Services.

“Should anyone have witnessed this collision and hasn’t spoken with police, they are encouraged to do so and quote file 2019-21472,” said Grandy.
