Investigators say a driver’s decision to stop for a squirrel caused a 4-vehicle crash on the Island Highway near Superior Road on Friday morning.

It happened around 8:30am, when a 53 year Nanaimo man saw the squirrel making a mad dash across the road, and slammed on the brakes

Constable Gary O’Brien says that decision caused a chain reaction.

O’Brien says luckily no one, including the squirrel, was injured, but several vehicles were seriously damaged.
