Fatality on Parkway

South of Mostar Intersection

On the 25th of April, 2008 at approximately 10:40am, Nanaimo RCMP, Nanaimo Fire Rescue, and BC Ambulance Service attended to a three car motor vehicle incident.

The first vehicle which was heading Northbound on Highway 19 struck a Flat deck truck from behind causing it to hit another vehicle in front of it. The incident occurred just south of the Mostar intersection.

The driver of the first vehicle, a 68 year old female from Qualicum Beach was pronounced dead at the scene. Occupants of the two other vehicles were taken to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital with non life threatening injuries.

Traffic had to be re-routed as Highway 19 had to be closed off to all traffic heading Northbound between Northfield and Mostar.

Nanaimo RCMP continue to investigate the incident and ask anybody who witnessed the incident to contact Nanaimo RCMP at 754-2345.
