A driver sustained serious injuries in a two-vehicle collision Friday evening.

On April 30, 2021 at approximately 7:00 pm emergency responders attended the 700 block of Greenlea Drive for two vehicles involved in what was believed to be a very serious collision. One of the vehicles had crashed off-road into a tree and the driver was trapped inside.

Saanich Fire was able to extract the trapped driver, who was rushed to the hospital by ambulance with serious, potentially life-threatening injuries.

The other driver remained on scene and cooperated with investigators.

An investigation by our Collision Analyst Team and Traffic Safety Unit continues to determine all the factors involved in the collision and if criminal or Motor Vehicle Act charges are warranted.

“Factors such as alcohol impairment, speed, and driver error are being looked at by officers investigating this serious collision.”
