Firefighters spread absorbent material to soak up fluids leaking from a Subaru that crashed on the Nanaimo Parkway near Tenth Street Monday morning shortly after 9 a.m. The car was travelling northbound on the Parkway when it slid left off the highway, crossed the median and both southbound lanes before landing in a ditch. The car hit a road sign en route which smashed in its roof. The woman driving the car was taken to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital to be checked over, but had no reported injuries. No other vehicles were involved.
