Icy roads trigger rollover

Two people walked away from a rollover in West Kelowna Tuesday evening.

At about 6:50 p.m. on Tuesday, a vehicle lost control on Shannon Lake Road, rolled over and landed on its side against a power pole.

Shannon Lake Road was closed near Crystal Road while emergency personnel attended the scene.

Cpl. Tania Carroll says it appears the driver lost control on the ice and rolled into the ditch.

The driver and one passenger walked away with only minor injuries.
