RCMP, Sooke Fire Rescue and the B.C. Ambulance Service were called to the two-vehicle collision at about 4:20 p.m. on Sooke Road, between Parkland and Woodlands roads.

“The investigation is ongoing. However, it appears from initial witness reports that the Dodge Caravan was travelling westbound when it crossed over the double solid line, colliding with the SUV travelling in the eastbound lane,” said RCMP Cpl. Joe Holmes in a press release.

Both drivers were the only people in the vehicles.

No charges will be laid, said police on Tuesday.
