Runaway artillery crash

A runaway artillery gun collided with a taxi in an unlikely traffic incident on Vancouver Island over the weekend.

The Canadian Armed Forces are investigating after the massive gun came unhitched from a military vehicle in Nanaimo on Saturday and rolled downhill.

It came to a stop when it struck a taxi at the intersection of Comox Road and Terminal Avenue.

No one was hurt in the bizarre collision, but the taxi received extensive damage in the crash.

RCMP are also investigated the incident.
