One person is dead following an off-road incident in Lake Country early Saturday.
COSAR said one person was dead while the other was transported to Kelowna General Hospital.
COSAR added that a helicopter was brought in to remove the damaged UTV.
COSAR crews reached the scene by using their own UTV, then walking a short distance to the accident area.
Lake Country RCMP say they are investigating, adding they received a call of a rollover on Spion Kop Mountain in the area of Summit Trail at approximately 4:15 a.m.
“When officers arrived on scene, they located the UTV. The passenger, a 34-year-old man, had succumbed to injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene,” said police.
“The driver, also a 34-year-old man, was arrested at the scene for impaired operation causing death and he was transported to hospital by EHS with minor injuries.”
Police say the Lake Country Fire Department, B.C. Ambulance, COSAR and Kelowna RCMP Forensic Identification Services assisted with this investigation.
“Our thoughts are with the victim’s family at this difficult time,” said police.
RCMP added that the B.C. Coroners Service is conducting its own, parallel investigation into the death.
