When a vehicle is pulled over by police it’s usually due to a driving infraction, but in this case, it was for more aesthetic reasons.

The incident happened in Langford this past Monday, when West Shore RCMP officers spotted the battered 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and pulled the vehicle over to inspect the extent of the damage.

“At approximately 3:15 p.m. a West Shore RCMP frontline officer on patrol spotted a 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee with extensive passenger side damage travelling on Veterans Memorial Parkway in Langford,” said Const. Nancy Saggar in a press release.

The passenger side rear door was being held together by tape and a cargo strap.

“Due to the damage, the passenger side doors could not be opened and the vehicle frame was likely bent,” writes Saggar.

The driver of the vehicle, a 22-year-old Langford woman, told officers that her vehicle had been involved in a T-boned crash a few days prior but that she had never reported it to police. She also didn’t have a valid driver’s licence.

The woman was issued a violation ticket for not having a license and an inspection was ordered on the vehicle which was impounded due to safety concerns.

RCMP are asking that the driver of the vehicle that was involved in the T-bone collision report it to police.
