Medical emergency leads to multi-vehicle collision in Duncan parking lot

One car pushed into building

Police have determined that the driver of a pickup truck had a medical emergency that led to a multiple vehicle collision in the parking lot of the Cowichan Health & Wealth Building on Trunk Road on Nov. 8.

Just after 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, officers from the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment were called to the scene and found that a white pickup had struck a grey sedan and a white SUV in the parking lot on the north side of the building.

The truck then pushed the sedan into the building damaging a window and a support post between T&H Nails salon and Vapour Solutions.

RCMP Sgt. Chris Manseau said it was determined the truck driver was having a medical emergency that caused the collision.
