West Shore RCMP is investigating a serious crash in View Royal on Sunday afternoon that sent multiple people to hospital and had the road closed for hours.
According to Cpl. Chris Dovell of the West Shore RCMP, officers attended a two-vehicle collision in the intersection of Admirals Road and Esquimalt Road on June 7 around 2:45 p.m. He said both vehicles were heavily damaged and that both drivers and a passenger were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
An RCMP collision analyst was called to investigate furthers, Dovell said.
The road was closed for about five hours and police were on scene until 8 p.m.
