A collision involving two vehicles on Sooke Road Saturday night resulted in the death of a 53-year-old man and injuring another one.
On Saturday, September 18th, just after 11:30 pm, West Shore RCMP responded to a motor vehicle collision in the 3700-block of Sooke Road in Metchosin.
Following an investigation, it was determined that a grey Mazda 3 was travelling eastbound when it crossed the centre line and collided head-on with a grey Ford F-150.
The 53-year-old driver of the Mazda was pronounced dead at the scene by attending paramedics.
Police said the 39-year-old driver of the Ford F-150 was trapped in his vehicle and had to be extracted by the Metchosin Fire Department.
He was then transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
“Traffic had to be diverted at the time for several hours to allow collection of evidence and determining the leading causes of the collision,” said Cst. Alex Bérubé, spokesperson for the West Shore RCMP.
The BC Highway Patrol Traffic Analyst and the BC Coroner are assisting with the investigation.
Anyone with information to this collision is asked to contact the West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264.
