Traffic was disrupted northbound on the Trans-Canada Highway in Mill Bay for a half hour following a two-vehicle accident Wednesday night.

Shawnigan Lake RCMP, the Mill Bay Volunteer Fire Department and B.C. Ambulance attended the crash between Frayne and Deloume Roads around 7:30 p.m.

A white 1998 Ford van in the northbound fast lane was rear-ended by a 1998 Red pick-up truck.

"The white van had braked as a result of another vehicle in front of the van braking for a deer on the road,'' noted Shawnigan Lake RCMP Sgt. Rob Webb.

Two occupants in the van were taken to Cowichan District Hospital with minor injuries.
