Witnesses sought in Malahat crash

Two sent to hospital, one with life-threatening injuries

Police are looking for anyone who may have witnessed last Thursday morning’s crash on the Malahat.

Just before 8 a.m. on June 23, emergency crews responded to a two-vehicle collision on the Trans-Canada Highway just north of the Split Rock viewpoint.

The preliminary investigation indicates a southbound Mazda pickup truck lost control and crossed into oncoming traffic, colliding with a northbound Chevrolet pickup.

The driver of the Chevrolet sustained minor injuries and was transported to Victoria General Hospital.

The driver of the Mazda, a 41-year-old woman from the Shawnigan Lake area, sustained life-threatening injuries and remained in critical condition at VGH as of Friday.

The Malahat was closed for several hours Thursday morning while crews examined the scene.

Anyone with information regarding this crash is asked to contact the RCMP’s South Island Traffic Services at 250-416-0352.
