Cyclist hit by car turning right

A cyclist was struck by a car near the entrance to the Oak Bay Marina Sept. 25.

Just before 1:30 p.m. police were called to a crash where a cyclist was hit by a car. A Mercedes-Benz driven by a 31-year-old Victoria man was travelling north on Beach Drive and making a right turn into the Oak Bay Marina. The car had its turn signal on and prior to turning was passed by two other cyclists on the right hand side. The driver then began to make the turn when a third cyclist operated by a 21-year-old Victoria man, also tried to pass on the right hand side.

The cyclist hit the front wheel of the car causing the cyclist to fall. The cyclist suffered minor scrapes and bruises and was checked over by ambulance staff.

Charges are not being considered.

Hit and run Jeep driver sought by police

On Sept. 27 at 9:30 a.m. an 89-year-old Oak Bay resident was sitting in his car in the Fairway Market parking lot off Hampshire Road. The car was parked and not in motion when a grey Jeep Grand Cherokee backed into his vehicle striking the rear bumper and trunk area causing approximately $2,000 damage.

The Jeep driver left without stopping. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Oak Bay Police department or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Unlocked cars make easy target for thieves

Last week there were 11 reports made to the Oak Bay Police department related to thefts from vehicles.

As has become the norm recently, nearly all of these incidents occurred to unlocked vehicles and with items left in plain view.

Oak Bay police remind residents to lock their vehicles and don’t leave anything of value inside.
