Truck caught fire on April 4

Neither speed not alcohol were factors in the crash.

On April 4, 2016 at 12:07 p.m, the Port Alberni RCMP received a report of a collision on Hiwt. 4 on the east side of the Port Alberni Hump. Police, ambulance, fire department and the Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement Unit attended the area.

A northbound white Ford F350 pickup truck had driven into the ditch, rolled over and caught on fire. The driver was able to exit the truck and walked away with only minor injuries.

The crash and ensuing fire caused minor traffic delays as the traffic flow was restricted temporarily as fire crews dealt with the vehicle fire and, the scene was investigated.

The pickup was demolished by the fire. Alcohol and speed are not factors in the crash. Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement will have the vehicle inspected.
