A local man was injured Saturday afternoon when his van rolled at about 1:15 p.m. on Tzouhalem Road near Providence Farm, police said.

The unidentified driver was taken to Cowichan District Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, while BC Hydro crews arrived to replace a power pole knocked out during the crash.

Cause of the wreck was still under investigation by the Mounties.

The red, late-model Ford Escape van flipped on damp pavement, and was totalled, while making a turn on a curve near Providence.

Traffic was blocked on Tzouhalem for about a hour while hydro crews swapped the pole.

It was unknown at press time if power was cut due to the collision.
