  • Sep. 18, 2019 12:00 a.m.

A vehicle that came off the road on Highway 97B collided with a hydro pole and wound up in a farmer’s field.

In the early afternoon of Wednesday, Sept. 18, a small SUV came off the highway just north of the Salmon Arm Golf Club. Traffic has resumed flow since the accident and a tow truck is on scene to retrieve the vehicle.

No power outages have been reported. The wires appear to be knocked off their pole but not severed.
