Heavy traffic filled Highway 17 after a two-car crash midday Monday.
The crash involved two cars, according to Saanich Police spokesperson Const. Markus Anastasiades.
One person was transported to hospital, but the nature of his or her injuries are not yet known.
A crash analyst is now on scene, someone who is usually called in when a serious injury has occurred.
One of the northbound lanes was closed at Claremont Avenue, and southbound traffic was heavily affected.
Police cleared the scene before 3 p.m.
