UPDATED 12:00 P.M.: Malahat now open in both directions
The Trans-Canada Highway is closed in both directions after an accident south of Mill Bay.
There has been a head-on crash involving two pick up trucks between Split Rock, near the Malahat Summit, and the Bamberton exit.
The drivers of both trucks have been transported to hospital. One person has serious injuries. The other is in stable condition.
Police say drugs and alcohol aren’t factors.
Crash analysts are on scene investigating but police say it was foggy and raining hard at the time of the crash.
A detour is in effect for northbound traffic via Shawnigan Lake Rd. and southbound traffic via Shawnigan Lake-Mill Bay Rd
More to come.
