One man is recovering in hospital after his black pick up truck collided with a concrete median on the Trans Canada Highway near Duncan Monday morning.

At 9:19 a.m., North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP officers were called to a single-vehicle collision in the 7200-block of the Trans Canada Highway near the northbound weigh scales.

Officers arrived to find a black Ford F350 on top of the centre concrete median. The truck’s driver and lone occupant of the vehicle sustained unknown injuries from the impact and was transported to hospital.

The investigation is still in the early stages and the cause of the crash has not been determined. However, police say that speed appears to be a factor in the incident.

The incident closed the northbound lanes of the highway for some time, but have since reopened.

Police are thanking motorists for their cooperation during that investigation and clean-up of the area.

While investigators have spoken to a number of witnesses, police are still looking for more.

Anyone who may have seen the incident or who has dash cam footage of the Ford F350 or the collision is asked to contact North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522.
