Mabel Lake Road roll over claims life

Armstrong man died in hospital after single vehicle roll over June 18

A single-vehicle rollover June 18, 2018, claimed the life of an Armstrong man.

Shortly after 4:40 p.m. Monday, Vernon North Okanagan RCMP and emergency crews responded to a single-vehicle rollover collision in the 2800-block of Enderby Mabel Lake Road in Hupel. The vehicle was travelling west and failed to properly negotiate a curve, which caused the driver to lose control before striking a tree and rolling several times into an embankment. The two occupants were transported to nearby hospitals with serious injuries.

“We are now investigating a fatal collision as unfortunately, the 59-year-old passenger did not recover from his injuries and died in hospital,” said RCMP Cpl. Yannick Lescarbeau.

The cause of this collision is under investigation.
