We are finding out more about that accident earlier on Hwy 97 just north of Enderby. The head on collision involved a northbound green 1996 Ford Explorer driven by a 39-year-old Aldergrove man.
The SUV crossed the centre line and struck a southbound red 2016 Ford F150 driven by a 58-year-old Salmon Arm woman.
The male driver of the SUV was transported to Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Police say he is being investigated for dangerous driving causing bodily harm and possession of a stolen vehicle. The vehicle is believed to have been stolen from Merritt.
