Firefighters use a thermal imager to peer through brush for a deer that might have been hit and wounded by a car that crashed into a lamp standard on the Nanaimo Parkway Wednesday. The accident happened about 8:30 a.m. in the northbound lanes near the Mary Ellen Drive turnoff. A motorcycle also went out of control and crashed when traffic slowed rapidly to avoid the initial collision. The female driver of the car was taken to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital with unknown injuries. The motorcycle’s female driver was uninjured. Police are investigating.
