Three people suffered non-life-threatening injuries after a two-vehicle collision near Mayfair Shopping Centre Friday morning.

Shortly after 9 a.m., Victoria Police were called to the intersection of Douglas and Finlayson Streets for a report of a two-vehicle collision.

The driver of a vehicle travelling northbound on Douglas Street ran a red light and collided with a southbound vehicle stopped at the red light.

The drivers of both vehicles suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the southbound vehicle was transported to hospital while the offending driver did not need medical treatment.

According to police, a passenger in the suspect’s vehicle fled the scene and went into a nearby business. He was found by officers while he was disposing of drugs at the business and was arrested for possession of a controlled substance.

He was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries sustained in the crash.

The driver of the northbound vehicle failed a standard field sobriety test (SFST) for drug-impaired driving. He was served with a 24-hour driving prohibition, a violation ticket for driving without due care or attention, and a violation ticket for invalid insurance.

Anyone with information is asked to call the VicPD non-emergency line at (250) 995-7654. Call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 to report what you know anonymously.
