A road in Sidney was briefly closed to traffic after a seven-vehicle collision.

The Sidney Volunteer Fire Department and Sidney/North Saanich RCMP shut down Henry Ave between Chicory Place and Seventh Street in all directions after the accident in front of Sidney Elementary School.

A video shared with Victoria Buzz shows the seven vehicles crushed against each other while parked in parking spots outside the school.

The cause of the collision is unknown at this time but did occur after classes were dismissed for the day.

One person was transported to hospital with minor injuries.

The road has been reopened to traffic as of the time of publication.
