Two women were taken to hospital in Kamloops this morning after their vehicle rolled several times on Highway 97C about 30 kilometres south of Merritt near the Aspen Grove turnoff.

The eastbound vehicle that was carrying three passengers went through the centre median and overturned through the westbound lanes, Merritt RCMP Const. Chris von Colditz told the Herald.

The incident involved just the single vehicle and the cause of the crash is still under investigation, he said.

The female driver and one of her passengers were transported via ground ambulance to hospital at about 10 a.m. in stable condition. A male passenger escaped the crash without injury. One of the women was said to have been in and out of consciousness according to an emergency dispatch.

Emergency Health Services confirmed an air ambulance helicopter that landed at the Merritt airport was dispatched to the call but cancelled en route.
