Oak Bay police attended a crash at the intersection of Beach Drive and Lansdowne Road at 3:40 p.m. Thursday, April 12.

A 34-year-old Oak Bay man driving a Volkswagon Cabriolet eastbound on Lansdowne Road apparently crossed Beach Drive without first checking to make sure the road was clear.

The Volkswagon struck a Hyundai Santa Fe being driven by a 69-year-old Central Saanich man. The Hyundai driver’s 61-year-old passenger suffered injuries to her arm and hand during the crash.

The Oak Bay driver was issued a violation ticket for leaving a stop sign when unsafe.
