No one was injured in a crash that saw a car careen through a roadside barrier at McTavish Road Wednesday morning.

Traffic was diverted around the McTavish Road exit into the Sidney area, as police, North Saanich firefighters and paramedics attended the scene.

According to police at the scene, a driver in her 60s was in the roundabout and apparently swerved to avoid other traffic. The car drove over a median and crashed through a fence and other barriers overlooking a residential area. The car was hung up on the barrier and did not get through to what would have been a drop onto a lower road.

The driver was taken to Saanich Peninsula Hospital for observation, said police.
