Crash shuts down Kalamalka Road

Only minor injuries in major crash

After taking out a power pole, a tree, and half of the car, two teenagers involved in a crash Thursday were lucky to have only suffered minor injuries.

At about 4:30 a.m., the Coldstream Fire Department received a report of a single-vehicle accident on Kalamalka Road, by the municipal office.

The vehicle took out a power pole and a tree and came to rest in Cenotaph Park.

“The car is split in two,” said Dave Sturgeon, fire chief, of the impact which sheered the vehicle.

There were two occupants in the B.C. registered Nissan Maxima sedan, who sustained minor injuries.

“The 17-year-old male driver and 16-year-old male passenger were located nearby the crash scene,” said RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.

“The scene examination assisted RCMP investigators in making a determination that excessive speed was a contributing factor in the collision. Charges against the youth driver are being considered.”
