Two are dead after an early morning vehicle collision on Highway 33 and Bryden Road.
Police responded at around 5 a.m. to a single-vehicle collision and upon arrival they discovered a grey Montana van travelling east bound on Highway 33 crossed over two lanes of traffic before colliding with a tree near Bryden Road.
Two occupants, the front passenger and backseat passenger were pronounced dead on scene.
The 45-year-old male driver sustained serious injuries and has been transported to the Kelowna General Hospital where he remains in stable condition.
“The investigation is still in its early stages as members continue to determine how this collision occurred,” Cst. Lesley Smith said.
The scene of the crash remained closed for several hours, RCMP said, as police and Traffic Services and Traffic Analyst processed the scene. The highway reopened at 11:30 a.m.
