A Nanaimo man is in serious condition in Kelowna General Hospital following a crash on the Trans-Canada Highway east of Albert Canyon in Glacier National Park..

The 72-year-old   driver and a five-year-old boy were in a pickup truck that collided head on with a tractor-trailer at about 2 p.m. Sunday.
