Police are looking for information about a white van caught on camera pushing an unoccupied car in the 100 block of Hampton Road in Saanich on Tuesday morning (Dec. 7).
Video surveillance footage obtained by Saanich police shows a car being pushed backwards as it comes into the frame, with the van eventually seen doing the pushing. The van was being driven on the wrong side of the road, then partially leaves the roadway and drives across the edge of a resident’s front lawn before leaving the scene.
The hit-and-run incident occurred around 10 a.m. and caused heavy damage to the car’s front-end.
Do you recognize the white van involved in this hit&run? It will have significant front-end damage. The other vehicle was unoccupied.— Saanich Police (@SaanichPolice) December 9, 2021
