Dump truck careens off road, crashes through concrete barriers into front yard of Kelowna home

Kelowna RCMP say the driver of a dump truck may have suffered a medical emergency behind the wheel prior to leaving the roadway Monday morning.

On Mar. 2 just after 9:00 a.m., emergency crews responded to a report of a single-vehicle collision on Glenmore Road North near Snowsell Street South.

Witnesses told police that the dump truck operator failed to negotiate a turn and subsequently collided with the roadside barriers, before coming to a final stop in the front yard of a home.

The dump truck driver, a 60-year-old Central Okanagan man, was found unresponsive.

RCMP said he was pulled from the vehicle by a passersby who started CPR.
