A woman with a warrant out of the West Shore was taken into custody after a crash in Oak Bay on Saturday.

Oak Bay police responded to a crash on Beach Drive near Cattle Point where a driver jumped the curb and drove through the brush before hitting a tree. The 49-year-old woman driving was not injured but the Oak Bay Fire Department was called in to clear the bushes from the driver’s side so she could get out.

Police records showed she had an outstanding warrant. The driver was assessed by paramedics and cleared for police custody then taken to the West Shore RCMP detachment to deal with the outstanding warrant. The vehicle was towed with extensive front end damage.
