An elderly man is dead after a single vehicle accident near Antlers Beach last night.

At approximately 10:15 p.m. Thursday night BC Ambulance Service reported attending a single vehicle accident where the vehicle had gone off the road into Lake Okanagan.

When West Kelowna RCMP members arrived they located a white Subaru Forester upside down and semi submerged, with a lone elderly male occupant still inside the vehicle, deceased.

The vehicle is believed to have been travelling southbound on Hwy 97 before it hit a concrete divider on the right front bumper then steered into the water.

The event is under investigation by the BC Coroners Service, South East RCMP and the West Kelowna RCMP.

No names will be released pending next of kin notification.
