    Driver error blamed for Malahat crash Tuesday

    West Shore RCMP say driver error caused a crash and shut down the Malahat Tuesday evening.

    Around 6:45 p.m. on June 1, a 45-year-old Victoria man driving southbound in a white Honda Accord veered into oncoming traffic, colliding with a grey Mercedes SUV. The collision was just south of Goldstream Provincial Park.

    The man and a 48-year-old woman from the Malahat area sustained non-life threatening injuries and were taken to Victoria General Hospital.

    The highway was closed for two hours while RCMP South Island Traffic Services and an RCMP traffic analyst investigated. B.C. Ambulance crews, Langford Fire Rescue and West Shore RCMP also attended the scene.

    Police determined that speed, weather and driver error contributed to the crash.

    The man was issued a ticket for driving without consideration.

    Saanich couple killed in Malahat crash

    Police in Cowichan this week revealed that the pair killed in last Saturday’s crash on the Malahat are Saanich residents Martha Ralph, 56, and Larry Machnee, 58.

    The couple was travelling northbound on a motorcycle when a southbound Honda Accord, which police say was stolen earlier in the day, crossed the centre line while attempting an illegal left turn near a rest stop.

    A 25-year-old North Vancouver man was arrested Sunday near the Mill Bay ferry terminal and now faces seven charges, including two counts of criminal negligence causing death. He is also alleged to have fled the scene after Saturday’s accident.

    Drunk driver allegedly causes 3-car, 1-bus crash

    A 34-year-old man is in hospital with serious injuries after a car crash Tuesday night at Quadra Street and Hillside Avenue.

    The man was recently released on parole and now faces several criminal charges related to the crash. His parole has since been revoked, police say.

    At 6:45 p.m., police say they were helping the victim of a hit and run near Douglas and Chatham streets when the suspect vehicle, a Honda Civic, allegedly drove past. Police followed the car north on Douglas.

    Turning onto Hillside, the officers turned on their lights and siren, prompting the driver to accelerate and he reportedly drove through a red light.

    The officers watched the driver continue eastbound, through a red light at Quadra, where he T-boned a black Cadillac. The impact pushed the Cadillac into a grey Chevrolet, then both slammed into a B.C. Transit but waiting at the intersection.

    The crash stopped the speeding driver, who had severe lower-body injuries and was pinned inside the vehicle. The Victoria Fire Department was called to remove him with mechanical jaws.

    Victoria police say the driver was impaired, had no driver's licence, had taken the car without the owner's consent, was driving an uninsured vehicle and was violating his parole.


    Coincidence? I think not.

    Two men are recovering in Victoria General Hospital after Monday night’s head-on collision along Somenos Road, police say.

    RCMP Const. Ryan Walker, of the North Cowichan/Duncan detachment, said investigation continues into the 7:26 p.m. crash.

    It saw a northbound and a southbound car collide along a stretch of rural road near the site of an accident a year ago, he noted.

    The sister of Duncan driver Luke Paddle, 22, said her brother is in “decent shape” in Victoria General.

    Walker believed the other driver is also local, but had no injury update by press time Tuesday.

    For unknown reasons, Paddle’s white Honda Civic collided with a red Pontiac Grand Prix on Somenos Road near Highway 18, Walker said.

    Paddle was taken by ambulance to Cowichan District Hospital, then transferred by ambulance to Victoria hospital.

    The Pontiac’s driver was airlifted from the scene by helicopter, Walker said. There were no passengers in either car, he said.
