One hurt in two accidents

Campbell River Mounties respond to two motor vehicle incidents and also want to speak to another driver

Campbell River RCMP responded to a two-vehicle collision on the South Island Highway near Heard Road on Friday at 1:50 p.m.

A 25-year-old Courtenay woman, driving a blue 2006 Subaru, was stopped for a left-turning vehicle when a 2011 grey GMC pickup rear-ended her car.

She was taken by ambulance to Campbell River Hospital with minor injuries. Her 32-year-old male passenger, also from Courtenay, was unhurt.

The 64-year-old Campbell River man driving the GMC pickup was issued a violation ticket for follow too closely.

Last Thursday, at 11 p.m., police responded to a two-vehicle collision on Rockland Road. A 1997 black Dodge pickup slid around a corner and struck a 2011 black Toyota van.

Heavy rain and wet roads contributed to the collision. No one was hurt and alcohol was not a factor.

Driver sought

Mounties are seeking the public’s assistance in locating the female driver of a copper-coloured or orange Ford SUV.

On Thursday, March 21, at 2:30 p.m., a male was pushing his bicycle across the marked crosswalk on 16th Avenue by the Save On Foods parking lot at Mariner Square when a female was making a right turn out of the parking lot onto 16th Avenue.

The male said she looked left, but not right, turned and struck him.

The driver did stop and checked to see if he was okay, and then left. However, he didn’t realize he had injuries until he got home.

Police would like to speak with the female driver.
