West Shore RCMP are looking for a driver of a black pickup truck that allegedly side-swiped another vehicle and caused a head-on crash on the Trans-Canada Highway over the weekend.

The collision involved two vehicles with a total of 4 people on the highway near Leigh Road in Langford just before 5:30 p.m. Saturday. All were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

RCMP say a red Volkswagen Jetta was travelling northbound when it was struck on the passenger side rear by a black pickup truck that was merging onto the highway.

The impact is alleged to have caused the red Volkswagen to cross into the oncoming lane, resulting in a head-on collision with a silver Chrysler PT Cruiser.

The 59 year old woman driving the Chrysler PT Cruiser had to be extracted from her vehicle. She suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries requiring surgery, and is now in stable condition.

Police are seeking the public’s assistance in obtaining details of the black pickup truck.

We are seeking any details surrounding this incident, that were not made available to our investigators in the first instance, states Cst. Alex Bérubé, spokesperson of the West Shore RCMP. If you have a dashcam and/or were in the area around that time, we would like to hear from you.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the  West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or anonymously through CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
