Two of the people injured in Monday's crash on Highway 4 have died

Monday’s three-car motor vehicle crash on Highway 4 has claimed two lives.

Sergeant Joe Schofield of the RCMP’s Central Vancouver Island Traffic Services confirmed Tuesday that a 37-year-old man who had been driving a GMC pickup truck died from his injuries Monday evening.

As well, a 34-year old  Campbell River womanwho had been driving a Chevrolet Cavalier also succumbed Monday evening.

Schofield noted that police will not release the names of either victim until they have identified their next of kin.

Meanwhile, an eight-year-old girl who was a passenger in the pickup truck remains in stable condition in a Victoria area hospital.

The passenger of the Cavalier was transported to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, along with the passenger of a third vehicle, a Toyota Rav 4. Both sustained non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Rav did not require medical transport.

“The seriousness of this crash has been fully realized by the deaths of two individuals,” Schofield said. “We have a team of collision experts working to reconstruct this collision and determine what caused it, in hopes we can bring some answers to the grieving families.”
