Young Vernon crash victim identified


VERNON — Officials have released the name of a north Okanagan teen who died Sunday afternoon in a crash on highway 97 in Lake Country.

Three others suffered serious injuries in the head-on collision.

The coroner has identified the boy who died as Rodney Michael Boring, 14, of Vernon.

He was a passenger in the car that swerved into oncoming lanes and slammed head-on into a pick-up truck.

The driver of that car, a 17 year old male from Vernon, and the two occupants in the pickup truck who are from Lumby, suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Police continue to investigate the cause of the crash.

A Facebook page has been created in memory of Boring.
