Saanich Police are at the scene of two significant but separate car crashes on the Pat Bay Highway between Haliburton Road and Sayward.

Traffic is slowed considerably going northbound and police are urging drivers to take alternative routes.

“As you can imagine, Pay Bay highway is backed up and we urge motorists to avoid the highway if they are attempting to travel north,” said Staff Sgt. Chris Horsley.

Horsley suggets West Saanich or Cordova Bay road as alternative routes to travel north.

The first incident happed at the weigh scales by Elk Lake around 11 a.m. The second occured at 11:29 a.m. at Haliburton Road, which saw the air bags deployed.
