An elderly man was killed Thursday at around 10 a.m. while entering the lsland Highway at Fuller Lake Road, police say.

The T-bone crash saw the man’s car hit by a northbound car driven by a middle-age female.

The wreck narrowed the Trans-Canada Highway to one lane in each direction while paramedics and fire crews attended the scene, and cops took measurements, explained Cpl. Craig Blanchard of the North Cowichan/Duncan RMP detachment.

Names of the deceased male and the female — who was taken to Cowichan District Hospital with non-life threatening injuries — have not been released, Blanchard said.

It was also unknown at press time where the two motorists live.

The highway was reopened early Thursday afternoon, Blanchard said.
