“At approximately 4:30 p.m.  on the Trans-Canada Highway and Smiley Road, the driver of a 1995 Toyota 4Runner, traveling north in the passing lane, reports his vehicle was rear ended,” North Cowichan/Duncan Cpl. Krista Hobday’s email says.

“This caused his vehicle to flip, and hit the median.”

She had no information at press time about the second, rear-ending vehicle. The investigation continues.
