No one was hurt after an accident involving a car, pick-up truck and boat on the Pacific Rim Highway outside of Port Alberni on Friday night.

Emergency crews responded to a call at 7 p.m. of a multi-vehicle accident on the Pacific Rim Highway 28 kilometres west of Port Alberni, RCMP watch commander Const. Corner said.

According to Corner, a Honda Accord carrying four passengers was travelling east towards Port Alberni when it crossed the centre line and crashed into west bound Chev pick-up truck with two people from Comox.

After crashing into the truck, the Honda careened into vehicle towing a trailer with a 25-foot boat on it. The boat was hurled off the trailer onto the road and was heavily damaged, Corner said.

The driver of the Accord, who was from Delta, and three passengers weren’t hurt.

The car is likely totaled, Corner said.

The two people from the pick-up truck weren’t hurt either.
