West Shore RCMP have released more information about a two-vehicle collision Tuesday that led to lengthy traffic delays on the Trans Canada Highway in Langford.

Just after 1:20 p.m., Mounties responded to a reported collision on the TCH just north of the West Shore Parkway.

Police say the driver of a northbound Mazda 3 lost control of the steering wheel, veering into the oncoming lane and collided with a southbound Honda Civic head-on.

Investigators believe the cause of the collision is due to the driver of the Mazda 3 having a medical emergency.

Traffic was shut down in both directions for more than an hour while crews worked to clear the vehicles from the highway.

The TCH opened to single-lane traffic around 2:45 p.m., then cleared just before 3 p.m.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital by ambulance with minor injuries, and there were passengers in both vehicles.

“Luckily there were no life-threatening injuries and everyone is expected to make a full recovery,” West Shore RCMP Cst. Nancy Saggar said in a statement.
