West Shore, BC – On February 28 at 9:13 pm the West Shore RCMP were called to a single vehicle rollover collision at the 2100 block of the Trans-Canada Highway in Langford. The vehicle in question, a blue 2018 Chevy Camaro, was heavily damaged and air bags were deployed.
The driver lost control on the on-ramp from Helmcken Avenue causing the car to roll over several times before coming to a rest in the northbound lanes.
The driver and passenger suffered minor injuries and were able to extract themselves from the car. Remarkably, no other vehicles or pedestrians were involved in the crash.
The driver, a 24-year-old Sooke man, displayed signs of alcohol impairment prompting the officers to conduct an impaired investigation which revealed that he was over the legal limit of blood alcohol concentration.
The driver was issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Driving Prohibition and his vehicle was impounded for a period of 30 days.
“Impaired driving is the leading cause of collision-related fatalities in BC. In this instance the driver wrecked a very nice car for no reason and is incredibly lucky that he did not kill or seriously injure himself, his passenger, any anyone else,” said Cst. Andrew Matheson, West Shore Media Relations Officer.
Please call 9-1-1 to report impaired drivers.
