A direct collision between two vehicles in Nanaimo left both drivers in the hospital on Monday night.

At about 10:30 p.m. on Monday, April 1st, a pick-up truck and a Honda Civic car crashed into each other in the 3600-block of Uplands Dr.

“It appears that speed was a contributing factor in the head-on collision,” Cst. Gary O’Brien told Victoria Buzz.

The driver of the Honda Civic was a 20-year-old male who had to be extracted from his vehicle. He is currently in the hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the pick-up truck had minor injuries and was taken to the hospital for observation.

Both vehicles were destroyed in the incident and RCMP is currently investigating.
