The North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP are asking the public to help them investigate multiple hit and runs that occurred on Sunday, March 17, at approximately 1:55 p.m. on the Trans Canada Highway near Fuller Lake Road.
While the northbound lanes of the highway were closed due to a motorcycle crash, a gold or brown Audi A4 drove backwards alongside the stopped traffic on the shoulder of the road. The Audi struck and damaged several other vehicles; there were no injuries. The vehicle was located shortly after the situation was reported to police.
The investigating officers are now attempting to determine who was in the vehicle at the time of the erratic and dangerous occurrence, and want to review any dash camera footage or other videos or photos members of the public who witnessed the situation may have.
“Public safety is always our number one priority,” says North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment commander Chris Bear. The actions of this driver unnecessarily endangered the community and we are asking for your help to further our investigation. We appreciate the cooperation of anyone with more information.”
