Drivers of two vehicles were injured in a crash tonight on the Nanaimo Parkway.

Emergency crews were called to the parkway’s Northfield Road intersection just before 9 p.m. Thursday after a Ford Escape and a Toyota Prius collided.

A witness said the SUV had been turning left from the parkway onto Northfield and the car was travelling northbound on the parkway, through the intersection, when the accident happened.

Emergency crews on scene confirmed that the patients had been taken to hospital with unknown injuries.

The accident blocked left-turn access to Northfield.
