Two accidents on Sooke Road have closed the road to traffic and knocked out power to 1,500 BC Hydro customers.

The two crashes happened around 1:30pm Friday. One crash near the Stickleback West Coast Eatery reportedly involved two vehicles, at least one of which had rolled over.

The other accident occurred near the Shell gas station, where a truck struck a hydro pole. There is no word yet on injuries.

DriveBC currently says Highway 14 is closed west of Gillespie Road with no detour and no estimated time of re-opening.

 

The Sooke School Distict is warning parents and students that buses will be delayed.

 

More to come.
