An unknown medical issue is believed to be a factor in a two-vehicle accident on Kalamalka Lake Road Friday afternoon.

A GMC Sierra, driven by a 53-year-old man, was waiting to make a left turn into the Vernon Golf and Country Club when it was struck by a southbound Ford F250, driven by a 78-year-old man, at around 2:15 p.m.

“The F250 ended up in the ditch,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy. “Both vehicles were damaged and needed to be towed from the scene.”

No one was injured in the collision.

Alcohol and drugs were ruled out as factors.

Speed and alcohol have been ruled out as factors in a three-car incident Dec. 7 at a busy Vernon intersection.

Police, ambulance and Vernon Fire Rescue Services personnel were called to the intersection of 27th Street and 32nd Avenue just after 6 p.m.

“A 35-year-old male driver in a Nissan Titan rear-ended a 60-year-old female driver in a 2012 Honda Civic who then rear-ended a 56-year-old female driver in a 2002 Toyota Corolla,” said Noseworthy.

The driver of the Civic was transported to Vernon Jubilee Hospital with minor injuries.

The incident remains under investigation.
