On Monday, June 6 at approximately 6 p.m. the Port Alberni RCMP Detachment responded to a single vehicle collision on Hwy. 4 and Lakeshore Road.

A blue Ford Explorer was travelling eastbound when the driver tried to overtake another vehicle as it nearer the end of a passing lane.  With an oncoming vehicle approaching, the driver of the Explorer was forced to lock up his brakes and skidded into the ditch. There were no injuries but his vehicle received significant damage.

A witness stated that the driver was driving aggressively in an attempt to pass another vehicle at the end of the passing lane.  The driver was observed to be travelling well in excess of the posted speed limit and was issued a ticket for failing to complete pass safely.

Motorists are reminded to observe posted speed limits and to allow merging traffic from the right to enter the travel lane as they approach the end of a passing lane.
