Rainy, wet weather is being blamed for two motor vehicle rollovers in Sooke on Sunday.

The driver of a van was travelling out of town when she lost control and skidded into a ditch at Gillespie and Sooke roads.

Police say speeding and slippery conditions were factors in the crash.

In another unrelated incident, a vehicle skidded into the bush at Glinz Lake and Sooke roads.

No injuries were reported in either incident.
