Two rescued from SUV rollover along icy Genoa Bay Road
A mother and daughter were rescued from their crumpled SUV that left an icy Genoa Bay Road Saturday near Grandview Road, officials said.
Firefighters from Maple Bay and North Cowichan's south-end halls used the Jaws of Life to remove the two people from the vehicle that rolled onto its side on a wooded slope at about 6 p.m. in clear weather.
The level of their injuries was not known.
Cold weather left patches of black ice in various areas, keeping fire crews, police and paramedics busy Saturday.
Two cars were also damaged after they left the slippery road at Lakes and Wicks roads at around 6:30 p.m.
No injuries were believed to have resulted from those crashes as the the two vehicles hit brush and other obstacles along the slick roadside.
Police were investigating all three accidents.
