Incident involving two vehicles drew emergency crews from Saanich and Victoria

One person was taken to hospital with minor injuries, both vehicles damaged

Emergency crews from Saanich and Victoria responded to a motor vehicle incident at the intersection of North Dairy Road and Shelbourne Street just after 8 a.m. on Sunday.

The incident involving a Victoria Taxi and a grey Mercedes resulted in one person being taken to hospital for minor injuries.

The incident took place in Victoria but spilled into Saanich, said Const. Graham Walker of the Saanich Police, so crews from both municipalities responded.

Saanich police said there was only one person in each of the vehicles. One of the drivers ran a red light, but Walker was unable to disclose which driver was to blame.

Walker said the driver who ran the red light will be charged under the Motor Vehicle Act.

Both vehicles sustained substantial damage. The front end of the Victoria Taxi was damaged and the Mercedes hit a sewer pole on Shelbourne Street south of the intersection. Tow trucks arrived on scene just before 9 a.m. and took both vehicles away.

Traffic was moving slowly through the intersection as crews dealt with the incident, but the area has since been cleared.
