Two trucks collide at Mt. Sicker

Two Cowichan Valley men were taken by ambulance to Cowichan District Hospital Monday evening after their pickup trucks crashed

Two Cowichan Valley men were taken by ambulance to Cowichan District Hospital Monday evening after their pickup trucks crashed at the intersection of the Trans Canada Highway at Mt. Sicker Road.

According to RCMP, a southbound black GMC driven by a 30-year-old Duncan man attempted to turn left onto Mt. Sicker Road when it was struck in the back end by the red northbound Ford truck, which had been travelling in the curb lane.

Both the GMC driver and the 73-year-old passenger in the other vehicle were transported to hospital with undetermined injuries, said North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Cpl. Krista Hobday.

The 71-year-old driver of the red Ford and her dog were not injured.

First responders from the Crofton Fire Hall and Chemainus Hall were called out. Hobday said the Duncan man was issued a violation ticket for failing to yield to the right of way.
