New Westminster school trustee Casey Cook was at home recovering Friday from a car accident that occurred Thursday in Burnaby.

Cook told the NewsLeader he was taken to the trauma unit at Royal Columbian Hospital. Although he said he doesn't remember much because he suffered a concussion, he said he was driving on Cumberland Street headed toward New West when he was hit by a vehicle headed south on Armstrong Avenue, forcing his vehicle into the convenience store at the southeast corner of the intersection.

Traffic on Cumberland has the right of way at that corner with stop signs on Armstrong.

The accident prevented Cook from attending the New Westminster secondary parent advisory council meeting that evening in which the PAC passed a motion calling for all board of education trustees to resign.
