One person was taken to hospital with injuries following a two-vehicle collision on the Malahat around 8:30 a.m. on Saturday (Aug. 15).
The incident took place in the merge lane near the Whittaker Road turnoff just north of the Shawnigan Lake turnoff, explained Lt. Jerry Lacquement of the Malahat Fire Rescue.
Paramedics also responded – according to a spokesperson for BC Emergency Health Services, two ground crews were dispatched and one person was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Lacquement said fire crews left around 9:15 a.m. but the tow-truck drivers and highway maintenance crews from Emcon Services remained at the scene to finish up.
