UPDATE: Driver escapes from crash in Sidney

Town truck and another vehicle collide, causing van to roll over

The driver of an SUV escaped uninjured after his vehicle rolled over in a collision in Sidney Monday morning.

Sidney Fire Department reported the driver was able to get out after his SUV rolled on Fifth Street at Henry Avenue — after being involved in a collision with a Town of Sidney truck.

No one else was injured, according to emergency officials at the scene.

Firefighters braced the SUV, which was left on its side with significant damage, so that it would not fall on any of the first responders on the scene. The driver was being attended to by paramedics as a precaution.

Both roads at the intersection were blocked and traffic was advised to avoid the area, and let officials investigate the cause of the incident.

Sidney North Saanich RCMP reported that after a preliminary investigation, including speaking with witnesses and the driver at scene, it was determined that the driver of the east-bound SUV did not complete a full stop at the intersection. The driver of the pickup truck travelling northbound on Fifth Street was unable to stop, striking the SUV causing it to roll onto its side.
