Three people were taken to hospital after they were rear-ended on S. Island Highway on Wednesday.

While travelling northbound on the highway at about 12 p.m., the driver of a grey Chevrolet Impala slowed down to make a left hand turn onto 6th Avenue. A dark blue Dodge 3500 that was following behind was unable to stop and smashed into the car’s rear-end.

Campbell River RCMP’s officer on scene, Cst. Jason Bouwman, said the three occupants of the Impala have non-life threatening injuries, but police will be checking in on them.

“We’ll be following up with the occupants of the Impala,” said Bouwman.

The driver of the Dodge truck was issued a violation ticket for Following Too Closely.
