Suspected drunk drivers crash into parked cars, tree, telephone pole over weekend

Havoc results in towed vehicle, tickets and arrest

Two parked cars and a tree bore the brunt of a suspected drunk driver’s actions in the 1200-block of Bewdley Ave. in Esquimalt Saturday around 9:30 a.m.

A 26-year-old Esquimalt woman blew a breath sample that showed her blood-alcohol level was well above the limit. She was arrested and released on a promise to appear in court on May 10.

On Friday at 10:15 p.m. a 25-year-old Victoria man crashed his vehicle into a telephone pole on Burnside Road East near Balfour Avenue. Victoria police spotted the suspected impaired driver leaving the scene in a Mazda pick-up truck. The vehicle had wood from the pole lodged near its tire.

Police issued the suspect a 24-hour driving prohibition, had his vehicle towed and slapped him with several tickets totalling $840.
