Drivers injured in Nanaimo Parkway crash

Car and SUV collide at Northfield Road intersection Thursday night

Drivers of two vehicles were injured in a crash tonight on the Nanaimo Parkway.

Emergency crews were called to the parkway’s Northfield Road intersection just before 9 p.m. Thursday after a Ford Escape and a Toyota Prius collided.

A witness said the SUV had been turning left from the parkway onto Northfield and the car was travelling northbound on the parkway, through the intersection, when the accident happened. The witness said it appeared that both drivers sustained injuries and that a passenger in the car wasn’t hurt. Emergency crews on scene confirmed that the patients had been taken to hospital with unknown injuries.

The accident blocked left-turn access to Northfield.
