Two drivers suffered minor injuries during Saturday's crash at the Frayne Road-Island Highway intersection, police say.

The two-vehicle wreck occurred at about 3 p.m. when a 2004 Nissan car, northbound on highway, hydroplaned as the driver lost control.

The car crashed into a 2004 GMC SUV stopped at a red light in the westbound lane of Frayne Road, RCMP say.

Both vehicles were occupied only by the drivers. They were transported by ambulance to Cowichan District Hospital.

It was not believed the 44-year-old male driver of the car, nor the 43-year-old female driver of the SUV, suffered serious injuries, police said Sunday.
