Nearly 2,000 without power in Saanich due to motor vehicle incident

A portion of Saanich has been without power for hours following a motor vehicle incident.

BC Hydro says a power outage in the Gorge-Tillicum and Strawberry Vale areas of Saanich is affecting 1,859 customers.

Those located south of Mann Avenue, west of Angeleah Place, east of Holland Avenue and north of Forshaw Road, are without power.

The outrage first began at 10:52 p.m. on Saturday following a motor vehicle incident and is impacting traffic control devices at intersections.

As a result, Saanich Police issued a statement Sunday morning reminding motorists that intersections, where traffic signals are not working, must apply the 4-way stop rule.

BC Hydro says crews are on scene and power is expected to be restored before 1 p.m. Sunday.
