Icy roads are to blame for a single-vehicle accident off Bella Vista Road Monday night.

Icy roads are to blame for a single-vehicle accident off Bella Vista Road Monday night.

Vernon RCMP were called after a grey Volkswagen left Bella Vista Road, tumbled down an embankment, slid through some trees and over a stone retaining wall before landing on its roof in a backyard of a home on Burton Road.

The driver, a 22-year-old Vernon woman, said she lost control around a corner on the icy roads.

Alcohol and speed were not factors.

The woman was not injured in the accident, which did cause significant damage to the vehicle.

Early Monday morning, a semi truck knocked over some barriers on the shoulder of Highway 6 near Pottery Road after sliding off the road.

The driver was not injured.
