Sooke Road had one-lane alternating traffic on Wednesday morning following a two-vehicle accident at the corner of 17 Mile Pub.

According to Sooke RCMP Cpl. Joe Holmes, the driver of the silver hatchback was heading into town, lost control of the vehicle and veered into oncoming traffic, colliding sideways with a CRD pickup truck.

The two drivers were the sole occupants in the vehicles, suffering minor injuries.

Holmes pointed out that speed was not involved at this point, adding that a contributing factor may be an oil spill near the Gillespie interchange.

Police is looking into the possible involvement of a third vehicle that may have dropped the oil on the road.

“West Shore RCMP is going to see if they can talk to the individual and determine if any inspections need to be done,” Holmes said.

No motor vehicle act charges will be forwarded to either driver involved in the accident.
