Minor injuries were suffered during Friday's 11 a.m. triple-vehicle crash at the Island Highway-Beverly Street intersection.

News Leader Pictorial lensman Andrew Leong said it appeared the collision occurred when a black BMW, northbound on the Trans-Canada Highway, turned left onto Beverly, then hit a van attempting to travel through the lights.

"The BMW's front is totaled, but its female driver managed to walk out herself, with minor injuries," he said.

Witnesses said the BMW spun several times before stopping in the intersection, he added.

One other car, possibly a grey VW, seemed to have clipped another car, then hit a fence, Leong noted.

The scene was attended by North Cowichan firefighters, paramedics, and police — who are investigating the crash's cause.

Mounties blocked Beverly and Canada, and other traffic routes feeding the highway from Beverly, Leong said.

The scene was cleared by around noon. RCMP were unavailable for comment by press time.
