Vehicles collide, explode during Cowichan Way-bend wreck Friday
Incredibly, no injuries happened when two vehicles collided then exploded on Cowichan Way Friday morning.
A fire responder confirmed no one was hurt at around 9:50 a.m. when a red Chrysler car smashed head-on — on wet pavement — with a silver Ford-150 pickup truck at the bend fronting the former Malaspina College building.
Duncan firefighters donned air tanks and snuffed the flames with water and foam.
Black smoke billowed from the scene, as drizzle fell on stunned onlookers and police who were sorting out the crash's cause.
