An air ambulance transported an injured man to hospital following an early morning rollover on a North Okanagan forest service road Sunday.

The man was travelling in a pickup truck with a woman when their vehicle left the forest service road at around the five kilometre mark shortly before 7:30 a.m.

“Hunters found the pair and brought them down to the (Enderby-Mabel Lake) road where we could meet up with them,” said Enderby Fire Department Chief Cliff Vetter, whose department was called to the scene along with an ambulance.

“The man had been complaining about abdominal pain, and an air ambulance had been dispatched.”

The helicopter landed in a field about two kilometres back toward Enderby on the Enderby-Mabel Lake Road, and took the man to hospital to have his injuries checked out.

The female passenger was not injured.

The accident remains under investigation.
