UPDATED: Pair survives dangerous Koksilah Road rollover
Charges aren’t being sought following Wednesday afternoon’s rollover accident on Koksilah Road that sent a local female passenger to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.
The male driver, also from Duncan, suffered minor cuts when he lost control of his Toyota sedan.
It left a gravel curve on the damp road near the former regional incinerator site at about 4 p.m., said RCMP Const. Markus Lueder of the North Cowichan/Duncan detachment.
The car landed on its roof before the scene was reached by a cyclist, Duncan firefighters, the RCMP and paramedics.
They carried the injured passenger by stretcher up a steep gravel embankment to an ambulance.
However, Lueder was concerned when told the paved Koksilah curve had no guardrails on the gravel shoulder that may have stopped the Toyota from careering down the gravel embankment sitting in regional Area E, Cowichan Station/Sahtlam/Glenora.
“That’s no good,” he said.
