At 3:30AM Saturday morning, Central Okanagan Search and Rescue was requested by BC Ambulance Service to respond to a serious UTV accident near Postill Lake.
COSAR members along with BCAS personnel attended the scene, several kilometers up a rough forest service road. The incident involved a UTV rollover and two male individuals. Unfortunately, one of the individuals did not survive his injuries and the other was in critical condition.
The injured individual was transported from the scene by a BCEHS helicopter to Kelowna General Hospital.
“On behalf of COSARs members, I would like to share our sincerest condolences to the families of those involved in this accident.”, said Brad Trites, COSAR president.
This was COSAR’s third task of the week and the 83 of the year.
