Truck goes into the lake

A pickup truck crashed into the Cadder Avenue beach access gate in Kelowna Sunday morning and ended up in Okanagan Lake.

A local resident was walking her dog around 7 a.m. when she encountered several emergency crews at the end of Cadder Avenue. She then noticed a black pickup truck had driven into the lake.

She said it appears the truck had crashed into the closed gate at the beach access.

It’s unclear what happened, but the resident said a man appeared to be detained in the back of a police cruiser at the scene.

RCMP, paramedics and fire crews responded to the incident.
