A high-speed crash in the West Shore area last week was captured on a home security camera.
The incident occurred near the 2300-block of Selwyn Road, when police say an uninsured 2015 Fiat 500 was travelling at a high rate of speed striking two vehicles parked on the side of the road.
In the shocking video seen below, the Fiat can be heard traveling at extremely high-speeds before entering the camera view before striking the two parked cars.
The driver of the Fiat was uninsured and unlicensed and was allegedly under the influence of alcohol.
Both the driver and the passenger suffered serious injuries.
The owner of one of the parked cars, a single father of two, had recently removed the optional insurance that covers incidents such as this; thus, ICBC will not cover the costs.
A GoFundMe has been set up for the owner of the parked 2006 Audi A3 totalled last Sunday, February 7th.
The vehicle was sent 30 feet from its position onto the front lawn of a nearby residence.
Now, the victim has lost his vehicle, his means to transport his kids, and his way to work.
“While trying to save money during Covid, he [the victim] removed the optional ICBC insurance that covers these kinds of accidents,” the GoFundMe page read.
“He has also been told that he is responsible for all of the towing and lot charges associated with removing his wrecked vehicle from the scene. His only option is a private legal case which would cost thousands in legal fees, with a minimal chance of recovering his losses.”
As of this publication, the GoFundMe has met $1,350 of their goal of $7,500.
