Grandpa taken to hospital following Parksville crash

A man was taken to hospital following a crash out front of Amrikko's Grill in Parksville Saturday.

A man was taken to hospital following a motor vehicle accident in Parksville on Saturday afternoon.

An accident on the Island Hwy (19A) in Parksville in front of Amrikko’s Grill on Saturday afternoon saw one man taken away by ambulance to Nanaimo General Hospital.

The man was moved from the car to a strectcher after what seemed like a lengthy exchange with emergency workers.

Manager/owner Mulu Silvey of Amrikko’s Grill in Parksville said she heard a second hand account that a woman was attempting to back up and move parking spots at the restaurant when another red car was about to pull into the restaurant parking lot from the highway. The red car saw the woman was backing up and stopped when she was hit from behind by another car on the highway. Silvey said she understood the injured man was a grandpa and was in the vehicle with his daughter and granddaughter.

The B.C. Ambulance service said the man was taken to the hospital on a routine basis.
