WATCH: Police are looking for the driver of a stolen car that fled the scene after flipping the vehicle
Fortunately, no innocent victims were injured in an unbelievable crash involving a stolen vehicle in Saanich Thursday morning.
Police received numerous 911 calls at around 9 am about an erratic driver in the area of Millgrove and Gorge Road West.
The driver smashed into a rock wall, causing the car to flip onto it’s roof.
The vehicle had been reported stolen in Victoria on Wednesday.
After extracting himself from the wreckage, the driver then fled the scene — prompting a search with the canine units of the nearby Gorge Park.
“The main thing is, he could have been killed and he could have killed a pedestrian,” says Sgt. John Price of Saanich Police. “He narrowly missed another vehicle just before the crash so he was driving like a complete idiot just before the crash and the result of that is this single vehicle rollover, so luckily there were no pedestrians on the sidewalk.”
The police investigation continues and the driver has not yet be located.
The man is described as a white male in his 40’s, approximately 5’8″.
Anyone with information is asked to call Saanich Police.
