Firefighters clearing up the debris following a three-vehicle accident near the Sooke Campground.

Three-vehicle accident temporarily shuts down Phillips Rd

Oily substance on the road blamed for the cause, police say.

Phillips Rd was re-opened to traffic and debris has been cleared following a three-vehicle accident on Phillips Road near the Sooke Campground on Friday afternoon.

The driver of a pickup truck lost control and veered into the side of a passing cement truck. Shortly after the impact, another vehicle heading northbound towards the campground collided head-on with the pickup truck.

According to police on site, the chain of events was likely caused by an unknown oil source on the road – the type of oil, or where it came from, was not determined, however.

Drivers were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
