A 56-year-old Osoyoos woman was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital Friday afternoon after her car flipped into a water-filled ditch.

Local emergency personnel were called east of Lougheed Highway and Nelson Street around 2:30 p.m. March 23 after motorists saw an eastbound Subaru Legacy go off the road on the north side of the road.

Mission firefighters and paramedics extracted her from the car and she was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police say neither speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
