Victoria police are looking for witnesses after a number of vehicles were struck by an impaired driver impaired Wednesday in the Burnside-Gorge area.

At around 1:30 on September 14th, VicPD and the BC Highway Patrol were called to the 500-block of Manchester Road after several vehicles were damaged in a parking garage for a multi-unit residential building near the intersection of Gorge and Jutland Roads.

Arriving officers located the driver responsible for the crash—as well as their heavily damaged vehicle—who provided a breath sample of more than double the legal limit.

Police then arrested the driver for impaired driving.


VicPD also said damage to the vehicle, a black 2011 GMC Terrain, shows evidence connecting it to other crashes earlier in the day.

Witnesses also came forward claiming the vehicle was involved in additional collisions.

“The vehicle appears to show evidence of previous recent collisions which may have not yet been reported to police,” VicPD said in a media release.


Anyone who witnessed a collision or found their vehicle damaged Wednesday is asked to call VicPD at 250-995-7654. Tipsters can remain anonymous by calling Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
