On April 16th, 2018 at 1:08 a.m. Penticton RCMP responded to a single vehicle accident on Summerland-Princeton Road, one km west of Mountain View Road, Faulder BC. Heavy rains had caused a large portion of the road to wash away. The wash out was 20 feet wide, and approximately 20 feet deep with the side’s washed away at a 90 degree angle. The wash out was the entire width of the road.
A vehicle travelling west on Summerland-Princeton Road and the driver did not see the wash out. The 2006 Chev Malibu went straight over the side of the wash out and slammed into the top of the opposite wall before falling to the bottom. The driver and her passenger, were able to walk out and call 911. Both were transported to Penticton Regional Hospital by BC Ambulance.
The car remained in the bottom of the wash out while ARGO Road Maintenance awaited engineers to assess the safety of the road. Summerland-Princeton Road was to be closed for multiple days. ARGO Road Maintenance remained on scene.
