as it is 5 years from now we are going to have wheat growing in that river valley.

 

It's already a literal fruit orchard along some sections of that track from railroad workers chucking remnants of their lunches out the windows.

clearly the pick-up truck was more worried about making a turn as the light turned red than he was about oncoming through traffic on the yellow/red.

Yea wtf was the pick-up thinking with a semi coming? 

 

Semi driver running a super stale yellow poor decision making too but less at fault.

🚔One to Hospital After Single Vehicle Collision At Gas Station🚔

Victoria, BC- One man went to hospital after the vehicle that he was in collided with a gas pump at a gas station last night.

Patrol officers responded to a monitored BC Emergency Health Services call for a single vehicle collision into a gas pump at a gas station at the corner of Fairfield Road and St. Charles Street just after 6 p.m. last night. Paramedics had already transported the man to hospital when officers arrived.

The initial investigation indicates that the man suffered a medical event while driving. His passenger was able to slow the vehicle by reaching over and activating the emergency brake. While the vehicle and the gas pump suffered significant damage, there was no fire due to the quick actions of gas station staff, safety measures in place at the pump, and the quick response by the Victoria Fire Department, BC Emergency Health Services Paramedics and officers.

This could have been a terrible incident. Credit to all those whose swift action prevented a catastrophe.

UPDATE: area clear after emergency crews respond to rollover crash in Victoria

 

https://www.vicnews....sh-in-victoria/

 

 

“I was waiting at the red light to cross and the black vehicle went right through the red light, no stopping and hit the grey vehicle over there,” said Andrea Goldthrope. “It hit the front end of the grey car, it flipped completely over. “

 

At least a cyclist running a red is unlikely to flip a car.  Flip off a car maybe.  In both senses.
