ORIGINAL:

Vernon emergency crews are responding to a vehicle incident on Highway 97 south of the city Friday, Nov. 13.

A single-vehicle has reportedly spun out and gone off the roadway in between Westridge and Vista roads.

The incident occurred just before 10:30 a.m.

The early morning snowfall has left roads slippery and covered in compact snow in portions.

A multi-vehicle collision closed Highway 97 in Lake Country for more than an hour while emergency crews and police investigated the roadway was cleared.

More information to come.
