The incident occurred just before 1:30 p.m. Monday. Traffic was able to pass but is causing some slowdowns in the area. Police were aiming to have the area reopened fully before the 4 p.m. rush hour.
Saanich Police initially reported there were no injuries, but has now said that one of the three occupants in the vehicle was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
At around 2:30 p.m., photos from the scene show a second truck backed up to the tipped over vehicle as crews unloaded the cargo.
