The morning after

Police described Sunday night’s weather conditions as “horrible” with snow, wind, rain and freezing temperatures. Weather is believed to be a factor in two separate accidents that occurred five minutes apart on the Island Highway, just south of Stories Beach. A 32-year-old Campbell River woman was driving the white pickup that was heavily damaged after it went off the east side of the road and rolled into a wooded area. Then, across the road, a Toyota car, driven by a 41-year-old Royston man, went into the west ditch. Both drivers escaped uninjured, according to Campbell River RCMP. - Paul Rudan/The Mirror
