UPDATE: Morning crashes causing delays for Greater Victoria motorists

Two crashes slowed the morning commute in Greater Victoria on Tuesday.

A section of Sooke Road is open after an early morning crash near 17 Mile Pub that brought traffic to a crawl for about two hours. Traffic was reduced to single-lane alternating traffic for part of the morning.

Meanwhile, a crash in downtown Victoria was also causing some early morning delays. That crash was reported on Blanshard Street between Johnson Street and Pandora Avenue.
