Accident sends three to Campbell River hospital

Three people were sent to hospital after a car skidded into a light standard on the Inland Island Highway.

It was raining and the road was slick when the accident occurred Tuesday around 11:45 a.m. When emergency crews arrived, they found that a blue four-door Pontiac had collided head-on with the pole as the driver attempted to turn right onto Willis Road from northbound lane.

The 35-year-old male driver, along with a woman and a girl all required treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

The force of the impact crumpled the front end of the car and resulted in both headlamp units being ejected across the road.

RCMP are trying to determine if the car was travelling too fast for road conditions. Charges are pending against the driver.
