A preliminary investigation indicates that following the initial collision, one of the vehicles spun into stop and street signs before crashing into bushes at a Quadra Street property, VicPD said in a release.
Meanwhile, the second vehicle struck a fence on Quadra Street before crossing diagonally across the road, through another fence and into a nearby house.
Video footage captured by CHEK News shows the aftermath of the crash. The driver of a green Toyota sedan crashed into the bushes, and the car’s front end was badly damaged.
According to ICBC’s crash map, the nearby intersection of Finlayson and Quadra streets had 80 crashes between 2017 and 2021. It shows Quadra at Summit only had one.
