There were no injuries following a collision between two vehicles in Saanich early Monday morning after one of the drivers went through a red light.

Saanich Police Sgt. Jereme Leslie said a Dodge Caravan travelling east on Saanich Road failed to stop at the red and hit a Toyota Highlander, which was going through the green light south on Blanshard Street.

The collision happened around 4:20 a.m. near Uptown Mall and two of the three southbound lanes on Blanshard was closed while crews cleaned up debris from the road.
