No serious injuries in highway crash near marsh

Three drivers suffered minor injuries during Wednesday’s chain-reaction crash on the Island Highway just north of Duncan, police said.

The 11 a.m. wreck June 29 involved three vehicles about 100 metres north of Beverly Street, explained Cpl. Kevin Day of the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP.

The crash site near Somenos Marsh was near the spot where a local woman was killed last year after pulling to the shoulder to let cop cruisers pass.

Wednesday saw a white Chevrolet Malibu, a grey Ford Escape and a black Toyota pickup truck headed north when the Malibu rear-ended the Escape.

The Escape in turn hit the rear of the Toyota, Day said.

There were no serious injuries but paramedics and firefighters attended the scene, he said.

The fender-and-bumper bender did significant damage to the Malibu and the Escape, which were towed from the scene, Day said.

No charges were pending while the wreck was still under investigation.
