Nanaimo Parkway crash sends three to hospital

An early morning crash sent three people to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital Wednesday.

The collision happened shortly before 6:30 a.m. when, according to police, a grey Mazda car ran a red light at the Nanaimo Parkway and Fifth Street intersection and hit a grey Acura.

The driver of the Mazda was not wearing her seat belt and was found unconscious in her passenger's lap when emergency crews arrived, but woke up as she was being removed from the vehicle and taken by ambulance to hospital. The passenger in the Mazda and the driver of the Acura were also taken to hospital.

Witnesses told police, who believe drugs and alcohol contributed to the accident, the Mazda was being driven erratically.
