Update: Dec. 14
Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says that RCMP were called to two-vehicle crash on Benvoulin Road near Byrns Road on Dec. 13 at 3:34 pm.
He states that police were told that the driver of a black Nissan Micra had been in the process of turning left across the three oncoming lanes of travel when it was struck by the driver of a white Ford Fusion.
The impact from the collision toppled the Micra onto it’s drivers side, landing on the nearby pedestrian walkway.
Both drivers and a toddler passenger from the Ford Fusion were each transported to hospital, by BC Ambulance Service, for treatment of what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.
Both vehicles were removed from the scene by tow trucks.
“RCMP are reminding motorists in this scenario to ensure that all motor vehicles, in each oncoming lane of travel, come to a complete stop before committing to a left hand turn,” adds O’Donaghey.
