Semi-truck smashes into Kelowna, B.C. townhouse

Kelowna, BC – The Kelowna RCMP is investigating a collision after a semi-truck and trailer collided into a residence located on the corner of Cameron Avenue at Gordon Road on Wednesday. As a result, the westbound lane on Cameron Avenue is closed until further notice.

The semi-truck is wedged into the residence and will apparently not be removed until structural engineers have been consulted. The power and gas to the residence have been turned off as a safety precaution. At this time, they are exploring ideas on removing the trailer portion to open the road.
