Woman pried from car in early morning crash

A young woman faces a drunk driving charge after crashing into a utility pole in Saanich early Thursday morning.

Saanich police say a car collided with the pole on in the 3900-block of Gordon Head Rd., in what was a single-vehicle incident. The impact was enough to entrap the female passenger. Saanich firefighters freed her using the Jaws of Life.

Both women, in their early 20s, were taken to Victoria General Hospital with serious but non life threatening injuries, police say. Alcohol is considered to be a factor and the drivers faces a criminal charge for impaired driving.
