Keremeos and District Volunteer Firefighters, BC Ambulance, and Keremeos RCMP attended the scene of a single vehicle rollover on the Keremeos bypass late Friday afternoon.

A white sedan travelling westbound on the bypass lost control and went into a shallow ditch, rolling at least once  before coming to rest  on all four wheels at the edge of an orchard. The vehicle, which was extensively damaged,  took out several fence posts and about 20 metres of fence.
The lone male driver was transported to Penticton Regional Hospital for treatment.
