The West Shore RCMP say a woman who drove intoxicated and crashed her vehicle into trees in Colwood can’t drive again for months.
A witness called police after seeing a grey 2004 Toyota Corolla collide into a tree line near the 2000-block of Sooke Road around 2 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 17, according to RCMP.
In a release, Mounties say the driver, 27, was the only person in the vehicle and was “exhibiting symptoms of alcohol intoxication.” She provided a sample of her breath to officers, who determined her blood alcohol level was over the legal limit.
RCMP say no one was injured in the incident.
“The driver did not sustain any major injuries but was taken to the hospital as a precaution due to the collision,” they said in the release Monday.
Police add that the driver was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition under the Motor Vehicle Act and her vehicle was impounded for 30 days.
“We want to thank the witness for calling police right away,” said Cpl. Nancy Saggar, West Shore RCMP media relations officer.
“It is remarkable that no one was seriously injured in this collision.”
