Poor road conditions factor into early morning crashes

View Royal fire crews remind residents to slow down in the snow

Before 2:30 a.m. Friday, View Royal Fire Rescue had responded to two crashes where speed and road conditions were believed to be contributing factors.

The first crash was on Island Highway, near View Royal Avenue. A cab travelling south lost control and struck a lamp standard. View Royal Fire Chief Paul Hurst said witnesses reported seeing the car speeding just before losing control. The driver refused medical treatment and Hurst noted the car was totalled.

The second crash involved a van travelling north on the Trans-Canada Highway. The driver lost control of the vehicle, crossed the median and struck an oncoming southbound car head-on. One person was sent to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
