Two men are in hospital after flipping over an ATV on Saturday outside of Kelowna.

The Central Okanagan Search and Rescue (COSAR) were called out to assist BCEHS crews in evacuating two males that were injured in an ATV crash, just off Postil Lake Road.

“The males were driving an all-terrain vehicle called a Razor when it somehow flipped over,” read the COSAR press release.
