They stopped to check on the vehicle occupants and found the drivers of both a silver Cadillac CTS and a red Pontiac Grand Am had already died.

“A passenger in the Cadillac was extricated and transported to hospital for treatment of what were believed to be serious, life-threatening injuries,” Terleski said.

“Highway 97A was closed for a period of time to all traffic to allow emergency responders to safely complete their work and police to conduct an examination of the scene.”

We’re asking anyone who witnessed the collision, or has information that may assist in the investigation, to please contact the Armstrong office of the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP at (250) 546-3028 and quote file #2022-7975.”
