UPDATE: Victim in mobility scooter traffic death identified as Oak Bay man

Still no charges against 90-year-old Saanich woman driving car

Oak Bay police Sgt.Dave McMillan clears away police tape from the corner of Foul Bay Road and Chaucer Street after a scooter rider was hit by a car on Dec. 28.

The man who died in hospital Sunday from injuries suffered when his scooter was struck by a car has been identified as Anthony Soulsby, 70, of Oak Bay.

Soulsby had been driving his mobility scooter across Chaucer Avenue at Foul Bay Road on the morning of Dec. 28 when he was hit by a vehicle driven by a 90-year-old Saanich woman.

Oak Bay police said the woman, driving a 2004 Chevrolet Impala, had stopped on Foul Bay before turning left onto Chaucer, where she collided with the scooter. Soulsby suffered head injuries and was taken by ambulance to Victoria General Hospital.

Drivers 80 and older must undergo annual testing to continue driving and police confirmed the woman had a valid driver’s licence.

The incident is still under investigation, but no charges had yet been laid as of Tuesday morning.
