A Saturday morning crash resulted in Sooke Road being closed for several hours.

The crash invovled two vehicles and took place near the Humpback Road intersection in Langford. It occured around 8:00 a.m. and the road didn‘t reopen until roughly 1:00 p.m.

Reports indicate that everyone involved escaped with non-life threatening injuries, but two were taken to hospital as a result of the collision.

A male occupant was trapped when emergency personnel arrived on scene, while a female was unconscious and being looked after by civilians when crews arrived.

“Any [collision] of this nature where the injuries are not believed to be life-threatening is a fortunate outcome given how serious the collision was,” said Sgt. Martin Beardsmore with the West Shore RCMP.

Traffic analysts were brought to the scene and the exact cause of the collision remains under investigation.
