A 22-year old Quesnel man is in hospital with potential life-threatening injuries after a collision Saturday on Highway 97 at Ross Road in Kelowna.

A 46-year-old Kelowna woman died at the scene. March 3 at 9:45 p.m., emergency crews were called to the scene of a two vehicle collision on Highway 97 at Ross Road. A southbound Pontiac Bonneville was making a left turn onto Ross Road when it was struck on the passenger’s side by a northbound Lexus SC40.

A 46-year-old West Kelowna woman in the passenger’s seat of the Pontiac was likely killed instantly. A 44-year-old West Kelowna man and a 22-year-old Quesnel man were both taken to hospital with potential life-threatening injuries.

Both men remain in hospital with serious injuries. Speed and aggressive driving are believed to be factors.

At this time it is uncertain whether charges will be laid.
