Cyclist struck at Foul Bay intersection

A driver received a ticket for failing to yield after a cyclist was struck on Oak Bay Avenue at Foul Bay just after 5 p.m. on Sept. 10.

The cyclist was on Oak Bay Avenue when he entered the intersection on a green light and a vehicle turning left hit the cyclist. The impact sent the rider over the hood of the vehicle onto the pavement. The cyclist, who was wearing a helmet, was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver was issued a violation ticket for failing to yield.

Mental health plays a role in naked assault

A man faces a court date in November after numerous calls to police last Friday morning about a naked man who had assaulted another man near the 300 block of King George Terrace. Police attended and located the nude man sitting on a rock. Officers determined that the man was possibly emotionally disturbed.

After more than 25 minutes of conversation, he was apprehended without incident and taken to hospital for assessment. Police say the victim was not seriously injured. The suspect was released from the hospital into police custody and has been released pending a court date.

Flow of impaired suspensions continues

A vehicle was observed speeding westbound on Oak Bay Ave. when it failed to stop for a yellow light at Foul Bay on Sept. 11. While the driver denied having anything alcoholic to drink, the investigating officer had the driver submit to a breath test. As a result, the driver was given a 90-day roadside prohibition, his vehicle was impounded and driver’s license was seized.

The same day another vehicle was noted southbound on Foul Bay Road near Oak Bay Avenue. An officer pulled the vehicle over and after a roadside screening, seized the driver’s licence  and issued a 90-day driving prohibition. The next day, a vehicle was stopped on Davie Street in Victoria due to a noticeable mechanical defect. When speaking with the driver, the officer noted the odour of liquor. The driver was, for unexplained reasons, unable to give a suitable sample of his breath. The driver received a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition and his vehicle was impounded.
