Left-hand turn leads to pickup truck crash

One man was transported to hospital and a father and his daughter were left shaken after two pickup trucks collided on the TCH Monday.

One man was transported to hospital and a father and his daughter were left shaken after two pickup trucks collided on the Trans Canada Highway at Allenby Road Monday night at about 8 p.m.

According to North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Krista Hobday, a 45-year-old American man and his nine-year-old daughter were headed south in the left lane on the highway when a 39-year-old man from Cowichan Bay turned in front of them.

He had been headed north and was trying to turn left onto Allenby Road at the time.

“Both vehicles collided in the intersection as they proceeded on an amber light,” Hobday described.

The 2005 Chevrolet Colorado driven by the Americans and the 1998 Toyota Tacoma driven by the local man both required towing.

The Valley resident was taken to hospital for neck and shoulder pain.

Everyone was wearing seatbelts.

A violation ticket was issued to the Toyota driver “for turning left in front of the other driver,” Hobday said.
