File # 12-45621
Date: Friday, November 16, 2012
Victoria BC – VicPD CRASH team is investigating the second serious crash within a week on Hillside Road, this time sending a Victoria man to hospital with serious injuries.
At approximately 4:15 a.m. VicPD was called to the area of Hillside Avenue and Cedar Hill road this morning for a spectacular single vehicle crash that left a man pinned inside for almost an hour. Officers arrived within moments of the 911 calls to find the small hatchback nearly destroyed after a collision with a telephone pole.
Victoria Fire Department arrived and had to extract the driver from the wreck as he was pinned and severely injured. After almost an hour of hard work, the man was taken out and rushed to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injures.
VicPD’s CRASH team has been on scene since and is trying to determine what caused the crash. They are investigating to see whether speed or road conditions were a factor.
