Minor injuries after rollover on Highway 18

Driver lost control of vehicle

Lake Cowichan RCMP received a report from a driver that they had been involved in a single-vehicle accident on Highway 18 just after 3 a.m. on Nov. 25.

According to a release from the RCMP, the driver lost control of the vehicle, a white Nissan Rogue minivan, while trying to navigate the curve at the highway connector, about halfway between Duncan and Lake Cowichan, and rolled the vehicle off the road into the ditch, ultimately landing on the roof.

“The driver suffered minor physical injuries, but was understandably shaken,” according to the news release.

“The driver was picked up and driven from the scene by a passerby to their residence, where they reported the incident to police.”
