A 57-year-old Slocan man suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries in a single vehicle rollover on Highway 6 at Lemon Creek on Wednesday night.

RCMP Staff Sgt. Dan Seibel says the driver was the only occupant of the Ford SUV.

It drifted off the shoulder, hit some gravel, went into the ditch, and flipped, landing upside down on the shoulder and then sliding into the oncoming lane.

The man suffered arm/hand injuries, as well as lacerations on his forehead, arm, and neck. He was taken to hospital, although it’s not clear which one.

The vehicle is a write-off.

The accident took place near Rooster Road. Traffic was tied up for over an hour.

Seibel says neither speed nor alcohol are believed to be factors.
