UPDATE: Driver walks away from rollover crash on Errington Road

Car rolled at least twice

A driver of a white sedan walked away from a crash after rolling his car off Errington Road Friday (July 21).

The Errington Volunteer Fire Department, Oceanside RCMP and B.C. Ambulance Service responded to the call which came in at 12:25 p.m. The accident was on Errington Road just before Leffler Road.

Troy Bater, Errington fire chief, said the car was driving westbound on Errington Road when the driver lost control. Bater said there appeared to be a “little excessive speed.”

“It looks like it rolled twice, at least. Witnesses couldn’t remember, but it looked like twice,” Bater said. “He got himself out and walked to the ambulance.”

Bater said the driver, who was the lone occupant of the car, was taken down to Oceanside Health Centre to get checked out.

“It doesn’t look like he got too injured,” Bater said.
