A motorist was taken to hospital with minor injuries after a crash on the Trans-Canada Highway in Ladysmith earlier this week.

Ladysmith RCMP were called to a two-vehicle collision at the TCH and Roberts Street on Sunday, Feb. 25, at 3 p.m.

Police say a southbound car attempted a left turn onto Transfer Beach Boulevard, but failed to yield to a northbound pickup.

The female driver of the car was transported to hospital by B.C. Ambulance Service paramedics. Ladysmith Fire Rescue personnel were also called to the incident.

The intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway, Roberts Street, and Transfer Beach Boulevard is Ladysmith’s second-worst intersection for crashes, according to the most recent available data from ICBC, with nine crashes in 2022 and 53 during the five-year period from 2018-2022.
