Five taken to hospital after Saturday's crash south of Duncan
Five passengers from a Honda car were taken to Cowichan District Hospital with various injuries after Saturday's early morning crash south of Duncan.
Duncan fire chief Mike McKinlay explained the 5 a.m. wreck saw the Honda's driver somehow lose control while southbound on Mission Road, and approaching Christopher Road.
He didn't believe any injuries were life-threatening.
The identity of the five passengers was unavailable on deadline.
The single-vehicle collision saw one passenger thrown from the black Honda that came to rest against a black pick-up truck parked on Christopher.
Everyone else from the crumpled car left the vehicle themselves.
"When we got there, they were all sitting on the lawn," McKinlay said, noting the Jaws of Life weren't used at the debris-strewn scene.
He didn't believe the car rolled, as its body posts and roof appeared intact.
RCMP traffic analysts were busy at press time determining exactly how the wreck happened.
It involved response by a rescue truck and pumper rig, plus 10 firefighters, from Duncan's volunteer fire hall, McKinlay said.
