Women miraculously uninjured after car flips near Kelvin Creek Thursday
Shiyana Hunter is lucky to be alive after her car flipped Thursday near Kelvin Creek, officials indicated.
Hunter explained how she lost control of her red Subaru in daylight hours on a downhill curve, while driving south along Koksilah Road, near the old regional incinerator, to pick up her child.
The car landed upside down beside a bridge over the rushing creek less than 100 feet away.
Police investigation of the wreck resulted in no charges against the Duncan driver, North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP said Friday.
Cowichan Towing staff said the Subaru, with a squashed roof, was eventually pulled from the treed site.
Tow-truck driver Ben Hinton scratched his head on scene trying to figure out how to yard the car out, after it narrowly missed trees and a power pole.
He and a Mountie on scene were amazed how an uninjured Hunter managed to wiggle out of the wreck that firefighters and cops couldn't initially find as it was out of sight from the road.
