A well-known Cobble Hill man has been identified as the victim of a fatal logging truck crash near Caycuse on Wednesday. Lake Cowichan RCMP have confirmed that Ian Fraser, 69, died after his truck went down an embankment and into a large pool of water.  The truck was about two kilometres past Nixon Creek, near Timber West’s Honeymoon Bay operations near Cowichan Lake, when it reportedly hit a patch of washed-out road and plunged down the embankment. The area has been hit with heavy rain, with 200 millimetres falling in the four days leading up to the crash, according to Environment Canada.
