West Shore RCMP say an alleged impaired driver was arrested on Nov. 10, 2020.

West Shore RCMP say a 33-year-old woman from Saanich was arrested on Nov. 10 for impaired driving after a two-vehicle crash on Goldstream Avenue.

West Shore RCMP said on Nov. 10, at around 4:40 p.m., an officer responded to a two-vehicle collision near the 890 block of Goldstream Avenue in Langford.

The officer determined one of the drivers was showing symptoms consistent with alcohol impairment, police said.

The driver, who is identified as a 33 year old woman from Saanich, was detained for an impaired driving investigation.

The officer also discovered the woman did not have a valid driver’s licence and had her three children (12 and under), with her in the vehicle at the time of the collision, according to police.

“Luckily no one was injured in this instance and the children were picked up by a family member; family services have also been advised. The driver was released on an undertaking and charges of impaired driving are pending. Impaired driving remains one of the number one causes of collision-related death in B.C. If you suspect an impaired driver on the road call it into police right away,” Const. Nancy Saggar, West Shore RCMP Media Relations Officer, said in a release.

The woman’s name has not been released.
