Updated: Vehicle rolls on Malahat Drive
Shawnigan Lake Mounties, paramedics and the Malahat Volunteer Fire Department were called to a single-vehicle rollover crash on the Malahat Drive shortly before noon on Friday.
The vehicle crashed near the Petro-Canada gas station on the highway near McCurdy Road.
Its two occupants were transported to Victoria General Hospital via ambulance with what are believed to be minor injuries, police said.
"This MVI occurred when the driver of the northbound car lost control when taking evasive action to avoid a southbound car, which had crossed the centre line into his lane," a media statement released by Shawnigan Lake RCMP Cpl. Jason Kerr stated.
"The northbound car went into the ditch. No other vehicles were involved."
The driver of the southbound car stopped at the scene, and received a violation ticket under the Motor Vehicle Act for crossing the centre line.
