Transport trouble

Emergency crews sort out the results of a collision between a car and transport truck that snarled north- and south-bound traffic on the Nanaimo Parkway Wednesday. The crash happened shortly before 1 p.m. when a northbound Pontiac Sunfire, driven by a woman, 19, crossed the median and hit the rear tires of a southbound transport truck. The truck fishtailed into a crash barrier before swerving into the median and flipping on its side. The truck’s 39-year-old male driver was unhurt. The driver of the Pontiac and her female teen passenger were taken to hospital with what police said appeared to be minor injuries. - Chris Bush photo
