Failure to stop results in collisions

A three-vehicle MVI near Sooke Road and Church Road snarled traffic and caused delays on Monday, Aug. 10.

According to first responders on site, the driver of a mini-van failed to stop on time near the lights, colliding into another vehicle in front of it, causing a motorcycle to slam into its rear-end as well.

The rider of the motorcycle was treated for minor chest injuries, though no other injuries were reported for the other drivers.
