Two drivers injured in Hwy. 4 car crash

Driver allegedly failed to yield at highway intersection

 

A Qualicum Beach woman is facing a charge of failure to yield after being involved in an automobile crash on Highway 4 this week.

Oceanside RCMP Sergeant Darrell Robertson said the incident took place at approximately 2:10 p.m. at the southbound ramp onto Highway 19 Tuesday.

Robertson said the crash happened when a 20-year-old Qualicum Beach woman driving a Dodge SX made a left turn from Alberni Highway onto the on-ramp in front of an eastbond GMC pickup truck driven by a 46-year-old Qualicum Beach man.

 

Both vehicles suffered severe damage, but the drivers were treated at the scene and released with no serious injuries.
