Several people were transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a three-vehicle collision on Highway 4 in Whiskey Creek Tuesday afternoon (Oct. 18).
A westbound vehicle on Highway 4 crossed the centre line and collided with an eastbound vehicle, which in turn collided with a third vehicle, according to preliminary information from Sgt. Shane Worth of the Oceanside RCMP.
Coombs-Hilliers Fire Department, BC Ambulance and RCMP responded to the incident shortly after 4 p.m. and the fire department extricated one patient from a vehicle, according to Theresa Benoit, lieutenant of fire prevention and training.
BC Ambulance transported the seven patients, all in stable condition, in three ambulances.
The fire department responded with a rescue and an engine truck and remained on scene for approximately 90 minutes, Benoit said.
An RCMP investigation is ongoing to determine any possible charges, Worth said.
