West Shore RCMP were called to a single-vehicle crash in Langford on Tuesday night and determined the driver was under the influence of alcohol.

At around 9:13 p.m. on February 28th, police attended the scene of the collision in the 2100-block of the Trans-Canada Highway in Langford.

There they found a 2018 Chevy Camaro that was totalled with heavy damage from rolling over several times.

The 24-year old driver and his passenger sustained minor injuries and luckily no one else was involved in the wreck.

Police say the driver lost control on the on-ramp from Millstream Avenue which caused the car to roll over numerous times before coming to a rest in the northbound lanes. 

According to police, the 24-year-old driver displayed signs of alcohol impairment and when given a roadside impairment test, he was over the legal limit of blood-alcohol concentration. 

The penalty for this is a 90-day immediate driving prohibition and his vehicle, which is not in working order, will be impounded for 30 days. 

“Impaired driving is the leading cause of collision-related fatalities in BC,” said Cst. Andrew Matheson, West Shore Media Relations Officer.

“In this instance the driver wrecked a very nice car for no reason and is incredibly lucky that he did not kill or seriously injure himself, his passenger, or anyone else.”
