Central Saanich Road has re-opened again this morning following a fatal crash Monday night.

Police say the two women were hit at about 7 p.m. while they were walking a dog. The dog was also killed.

The BC Coroners Service confims they’re in the early stages of an investigation involving a woman in her 50’s.

The road was shut down to traffic overnight while officers investigated the scene between Mt Newton X Road and East Saanich Road.
