Sooke File 2016-4127
Head-On MVA Closes Sooke Road (Highway 14)
A head-on motor vehicle accident occurred at the intersection of Gillespie Road and Highway 14 (Sooke Road). At this point in the investigation it appears a westbound vehicle crossed the center line and collided with vehicle that was eastbound. Both vehicles had only the driver as sole occupant, and both driver’s received, fortunately, only minor injuries. Alcohol, drugs, or anything criminal was not a factor in the incident.
The Sooke RCMP wish to remind the public that presently the roads are extremely slippery in portions due to the recent rainfalls, proceeded by a very dry period.
