Truck winds up in Kelowna pond after losing tire

A white GMC Canyon was just picked up from an automotive shop before the incident

Kelowna police don’t believe anything fishy was going on when a car crashed into a pond after being picked up from an automotive shop on Wednesday evening.

A white GMC Canyon was driving near the 3200-block of Glenmore Road North when one of its tires suddenly came off and the vehicle veered off the road into a pond.

The driver was able to get out of the vehicle with no serious injuries.

This wasn’t the only car-meets-water incident this week. On Tuesday, a truck was spotted in the lake at the downtown Kelowna boat launch.

Both vehicles have since been removed from the water.
