One man has been transported to hospital after a medical issue caused him to roll the dump truck he was driving off of Sooke Road.
Emergency crews responded to the scene between Kangaroo Road and the four lane section of Sooke Road after receiving a call at 8:50 a.m Friday.
No other vehicles were involved in the incident, but the man who was driving the dump truck has suffered significant injuries, said Const. Nancy Saggar, of West Shore RCMP, describing them as “not minor, but not life threatening.” He is expected to recover.
Emergency crews have left the scene but highway services remain in the area to direct traffic. “It’s going to be very difficult to get this dump truck out of the ditch,” Saggar said. She added that people should expect traffic delays for at least the next few hours.
A detour is available down Kangaroo Road for traffic heading out of Sooke.
More to come.
Sooke lane is backed up past the 4 lanes (headed toward Sooke). There was a single vehicle collision with a dump truck gone off the road. Expect traffic delays for the next few hours if you are headed out that way. Drive safe everyone. #yyctraffic @SookeRCMP @WestshoreRCMP
