Black ice is being blamed for a motor vehicle crash on Highway 19 Thursday morning.

Qualicum Beach fire Chief Darryl Kohse said the driver of a silver pickup truck lost control of the vehicle after skidding on black ice on the bridge over Morningstar Creek.

The vehicle slammed into a concrete barrier before coming to rest in the grassy ditch beside the highway.

Kohse said the driver suffered a possible fractured wrist in the crash.

Motorists are warned to beware of black ice, particularly on bridge decks, as the cold winter weather begins to settle in over Oceanside.
