Last Friday’s morning rush hour jam on Comox Road which saw a truck knock over a pole pole was caused by a medical issue, confirm Comox Valley RCMP.

Cst. Don Sinclair said there is no charges on the file which had traffic backed up for hours and power outages throughout Courtenay.

Two occupants escaped serious injury, and the road was re-opened several hours later.

Odd theft

An unusual vehicle stolen in the Cook Creek area was reported to police as stolen April 28.

Sinclair said a grader from a private company was parked on the side of the road, and is valued at $10,000.

“It’s a rather big piece of equipment,” he noted.
