An impaired driver caused significant damage to a Langford property after crashing into a stone wall last week.

The crash occurred on Thursday November 3rd near the intersection of Nicklaus Drive and Eston Place in Langford.

West Shore RCMP say the driver of a 2018 Grey Dodge Challenger SRT ran over a tree, ripping it out of the ground before crashing into the stone wall.

The crash was significant enough to cause the airbags to deploy, causing minor injuries to the driver and passenger.

Upon further investigation, police determined the driver was exhibiting symptoms of being impaired by alcohol and pursued an impaired driving investigation.

The driver, identified as a 28-year-old man, failed a roadside screening device and was over the legal limit of blood alcohol concentration.

The driver was handed a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days.
