A 29-year-old Comox resident was airlifted to the Victoria General Hospital intensive care unit after a single-vehicle collision Sunday morning.

Shortly after midnight, Oceanside RCMP were dispatched to Highway 4 at Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park. The driver of a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta was eastbound when he lost control on the damp road, and the car collided with a power pole.

There were no passengers in the car, say Oceanside RCMP. The cause of the collision is under investigation by the Oceanside RCMP and the RCMP traffic analyst/reconstructionist section.

The injured man has not been identified and his injuries were not specified.
