On April 12 two vehicles crashed head on while travelling in opposite directions on the Alberni Highway, resulting in a roll over.

Port Alberni RCMP responded to the crash at 4:09 p.m. near Elkford Drive.

A yellow Dodge pickup truck was travelling eastbound on Highway 4 heading up the Hump when it lost control on wet roads just east of Elkford Drive. The pickup truck bounced off the concrete barrier then skid sideways into the westbound lane where it collided with a red Dodge pickup truck, which was westbound on Highway 4 heading into Port Alberni.

The collision caused the red pickup truck to skid to the right and flip on to its roof in the westbound lane. Only minor injuries were sustained by the driver of the red pickup truck. The police investigation into the cause of the collision is ongoing.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact the Port Alberni RCMP at
