Icy road blamed for truck crash

Motorists are reminded to beware of black ice as winter sets in

Qualicum Beach firefighters survey the crashed vehicle in the ditch by Highway 19.

Black ice is being blamed for a motor vehicle crash on Highway 19 Thursday morning.

Qualicum Beach fire Chief Darryl Kohse said the driver of a silver pickup truck lost control of the vehicle after skidding on black ice on the bridge over Morningstar Creek.

The vehicle slammed into a concrete barrier before coming to rest in the grassy ditch beside the highway.

Kohse said the driver suffered a possible fractured wrist in the crash.

Motorists are warned to beware of black ice, particularly on bridge decks, as the cold winter weather begins to settle in over Oceanside.
