A 55-year-old Kamloops woman was killed in a two-vehicle accident near Vernon on Tuesday afternoon.
RCMP say the 5:30 p.m. crash at the intersection of Highway 97 and Westside Road in Spallumcheen involved three Kamloops women in a Honda SUV that was turning left onto the highway from Westside Road when it was broadsided by an eastbound Chevrolet pickup truck.
"The Chev-ro-let struck the driver's side of the Honda, resulting in serious injuries to the 18-year-old female driver from Kamloops," RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said.
"A 54-year-old Kamloops female who was in the front seat was transported in critical condition via air ambulance to Kamloops hospital.
"Unfortunately, a second 55-year-old Kamloops female was pronounced deceased on scene."
Moskaluk said the male driver of the Chevrolet Silverado was shaken, but uninjured.
