Police have arrested a 42-year-old Metchosin woman in connection to a pair of incidents which left vehicles and property damaged in Colwood early Tuesday morning.
The driver is under investigation for impaired driving, West Shore RCMP said Wednesday in a release.
Police responded to the 400 block of Dressler Road around 3:15 a.m. on Nov. 30 after receiving multiple reports that a vehicle had crashed into several parked cars.
Nearby resident Tristan Chamings captured the crash on a surveillance camera. In the footage, a driver in a small SUV can be seen trying to turn left on Dressler Road off Wishart Road, but failing to make the turn and striking a parked car. The motorist crosses to the other side of Dressler, striking a full-sized pickup truck, pushing it several feet onto a resident’s lawn.
Police said the vehicle then left the scene.
Around 3:30 a.m., police received a call from a residence on Stornoway Drive, reporting a small SUV had crashed into a fence then fled the scene.
Investigations determined the same vehicle was involved in both incidents and police traced the owner with a vehicle identification number found on a piece of its bumper left behind at one of the scenes.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264.
