A crash on Sooke Road slowed traffic to a crawl Friday morning, with eyewitnesses saying the driver was injured and being treated by paramedics.
Photos from the scene show the crash occurred just west of Langford, where the road widens into four lanes.
The crash occurred shortly before 9 a.m. Friday morning, with a dump truck driving off the road into a shallow ravine.
Eyewitnesses said the driver was trapped in the crash by debris.
West Shore RCMP tweeted at 9:54 a.m. that the collision only involved one vehicle, and traffic delays were expected for the next few hours.
Sooke lane is backed up past the 4 lanes (headed toward Sooke). There was a single vehicle collision with a dump truck gone off the road. Expect traffic delays for the next few hours if you are headed out that way. Drive safe everyone. #yyctraffic @SookeRCMP @WestshoreRCMP
