Two vehicles damaged, drivers taken to hospital

Two drivers were taken to hospital after a car crash at the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway and Fisher Road in Cobble Hill on Monday morning.

Around 10:30 a.m., a red Dodge Journey was making a left turn onto Fisher Road from the northbound lane of the highway when it was struck by a southbound Volkswagen Beetle. Shawnigan Lake RCMP, volunteer firefighters and the BC Ambulance Service all attended. Northbound lanes were shut down to traffic for a short time.

The drivers were the lone occupants of both vehicles, and they were both taken to hospital.

Shawnigan Lake RCMP detachment commander Sgt. Tim Desaulniers said the investigation was ongoing.
