Prior to this crash, a pregnant off-duty West Shore RCMP officer was driving in the opposite direction at the time, with her toddler in the car.

According to her, the same car came into her lane and narrowly missed a head-on collision with her vehicle.

Another off-duty officer witnessed the vehicle swerving on Sooke Rd approaching Slegg Lumber.

The car first crashed into a radar operated speed sign, and then went into the oncoming lane before over correcting again and crashing into the utility pole.

In the aftermath of the collision, the driver was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries.

Police have launched an investigation as they believe she was intoxicated by alcohol at the time of the incident.
