Officers from the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment attended a crash on April 8 at 9:19 a.m. in the 7200 block of the Trans Canada Highway, near the north-bound weigh scales, just outside Duncan.
The incident involved a single vehicle, a black Ford F350, that impacted the centre median.
The male driver, and lone occupant of the vehicle, sustained unknown injuries and is in hospital.
This investigation is in its early stages and the cause of the collision has not been determined at this time, however speed does appear to be a factor, North Cowichan Duncan RCMP said.
Investigators spoke with a number of witnesses on scene and if there are further witnesses with in-car camera recordings of the collision or the vehicle driving prior to the crash, they are asked to contact Const. Neil Fabbi at 250-748-5522 and refer to North Cowichan/Duncan police file number 2019-5837.
The attending front-line officers and the other first responders at the accident site appreciated the cooperation of those travelling on the highway at that time, police said.
This assisted with getting the scene documented, cleaned up and the highway back open relatively quickly.
