The crash occurred near the A&W restaurant on Douglas Street just before 2 p.m. and traffic is being diverted around the incident.
Police, fire crews and the BC Ambulance Service were in attendance. At 2:30 p.m., the two damaged sedans remained on the roadway as crews worked to clean up the scene.
Members of the Saanich Fire Department noted that they’re unsure when the lanes will reopen to traffic as tow trucks had yet to arrive to take the vehicles away.
This was the second collision of the hour as a cyclist was hit by the driver of a van near the intersection of Carey Road and Ravine Way just before 1:30 p.m. No injuries were reported in that collision and the cyclist was able to leave on their bike.
