Two drivers were injured in a head-on collision Monday morning in the 3700 block of South Island Highway.

The accident occurred around 8:30 a.m., on the bend near Heard Road, just south of the Ocean Grove area. According to Campbell River Fire Chief Ian Baikie, a black pickup truck and an SUV collided head-on, causing extensive damage to both vehicles. Firefighters from both halls responded to the accident and used jaws of life to extricate the driver of the pickup. Both drivers were taken to Campbell River Hospital with unknown injuries.

It was a busy Labour Day weekend for emergency crews who responded to at least four traffic accidents.
