Incident left woman with ‘minor injuries’ as West Shore RCMP continue investigation

West Shore RCMP continue to investigate a motor vehicle incident on the Trans-Canada Highway that sent a woman to hospital described as minor.

The incident — which left one vehicle with damages in the northbound lane of the highway— slowed down traffic without stopping it for about an hour or so. Traffic resumed just after 11 a.m.

Cpt. Troy Mollin of View Royal Fire Rescue said the “young woman” was driving alone when the incident happened. He said the incident also involved a second vehicle, but that is not clear at this stage what role it and its driver played.

“It’s really a single-vehicle incident,” he said.
