Car collides with dump truck in Nanaimo

One woman taken to hospital after her car collided with dump truck in on slippery corner

One woman was taken to hospital after her car collided with a dump truck this afternoon (June 15).

The crash happened at the corner of Rutherford and Butcher roads shortly after 1:30 p.m.

The cause of the accident is under investigation, but firefighters at the scene said they had attended another collision at that section of Rutherford Road, which is on a steep slope and has a 90-degree corner, about 30 minutes prior.

There was heavy rain and it was windy at the time of the crash.

No one else was injured.

A city works crew was called out to put sand on diesel oil that was leaking from one of the vehicles.
