Penticton are investigating after a single vehicle collision this morning resulted in the death of the driver.

Officers were called out at 8 a.m. on Nov. 19 to a report of a pick-up truck on its roof near Holden Rd and Carmi Ave. The lone male occupant of the vehicle, a man in his 20s, was confirmed dead.

“Investigators gathered evidence at the scene, with the assistance of the RCMP Traffic Service Analyst and BC Coroner’s Service. It is uncertain when the collision occurred, but it appeared it had happened sometime overnight, said Const. James Grandy.
