We are hearing of an MVI in East Sooke, along 900 block Gillespie Road, at around 10 p.m. on Saturday, August 20, 2016.
Hydro lines are involved. According to reports, the pole has been sheered off. The lines are still “up top.”
The driver is out of the car and appears to be OK. Traffic control is set up.
BC Hydro is showing that a crew has been dispatched and will be arriving by 11:30 p.m. Just over 1,000 customers have been affected. It is expected that power is restored by 8:30 a.m. on Sunday. You can view the BC Hydro outages list here for updates.
