One person was checked for minor injuries after a two-car collision occurred near the Parksville Fire Department hall on Friday, Dec. 15.
Shortly before 2 p.m., Parksville volunteer firefighters were notified of the crash.
At the scene, a blue car was pointed north on the Alberni Highway while a grey SUV was pointed west on Jensen Avenue West. They had collided in the middle of the intersection, with a front corner of each car showing damage.
Firefighters were directing traffic, with the northbound lane of Alberni Highway closed, and vehicles alternating through the intersection as tow truck drivers arrived.
Oceanside RCMP Const. Dean Oliver was on scene, and said preliminary interviews into the collision were a case of he-said, she-said. But Oliver noted that “somebody ran a red light.” He said one woman was being checked out for possible minor injuries.
The scene was cleaned up and normal traffic flows were restored before 3 p.m.
