One man taken to hospital after car strikes median and flips.
One man was taken to hospital and a busy Esquimalt Street was closed after a dramatic crash this morning.

A tree and a pole, cemented into the ground helped to launch the car up and onto its roof on the other side of the street.
According to Victoria Police Constable Mike Russell, “we got multiple calls of a vehicle roll over in the area our officers came on scene and already thankfully saw numerous civilians around helping.”
Members of the Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt also offered their asssistance to the victim.
The lone male occupant of the vehicle was taken to hospital with undetermined injuries.
Crash analysts were called to determine a cause.
Witnesses say the car did not appear to be speeding.
There were no other vehicles involved.
