Impaired charges considered after driver crashes Jaguar into sleeping couple’s Saanich bedroom

Saanich police suspect alcohol played a role in a Carey Road crash early Thursday morning

A young couple asleep in their bed got the scare of their lives this morning when a car crashed through their bedroom wall.

Around 2 a.m. a red Jaguar was travelling north on Tillicum Road toward Carey Road and missed the turn, clipping a fence, striking a parked car and then crashing through the front of a home.

The car pushed the couple’s bed a few feet in the bedroom, but neither of them were injured.

The driver of the Jaguar fled on foot, but was located by police a few blocks away and arrested. He was suffering from non-life threatening head injuries.

Saanich police Sgt. Scott Treble says the 51-year-old driver had been drinking. Police are now considering charges of impaired driving and failing to remain at the scene.
