North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying an older model BMW that struck two parked cars at a high speed early Saturday morning.
According to police, a witness saw the collision occurred around 1:45 a.m. in the 1700-block of Cowichan Bay Road.
The witness said the suspected BMW sedan was traveling at a high rate of speed down Cowichan Bay Road with an accompanying car following it when it approached a “slow right turn” in the road and lost control.
The car struck two parked cars, an Audi S5 and a Mazda CCX5, causing significant damage to both vehicles, police say.
The BMW and accompanying car then sped away from the area, according to the witness.
Police believe the force of the collision would have caused significant and noticeable damage to the BMW’s rear bumper area.
Additionally, RCMP say that parts of the suspected vehicle were broken off and left at the scene of the collision, which have been used to identify the BMW as a light grey or white sedan with a rear spoiler made between 1985 and 1993.
Anyone with information on the vehicle or its driver are asked to contact Cst. David Grey of the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522. To remain anonymous, people can also contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
