A road rage incident in the West Shore had someone using their vehicle to smash into an acquaintance’s Harley Davidson repeatedly, sending the motorbike into the home and injuring its owner.
At around 7 p.m. on April 23rd, West Shore RCMP were called to the site of the incident in the 3000-block of Glen Lake Road in Langford.
The caller reported a female suspect was ramming her black 2013 BMW 328i into a parked motorcycle on a residential driveway.
Following the initial incident, the driver in the BMW fled the scene before returning mere minutes later.
Police say this time, she drove through the front yard of the residence to ram the motorcycle again.
The owner of the motorcycle was reportedly standing near the HArley Davidson when it was struck a second time and the motorcycle struck the owner before being pushed by the BMW into the exterior of the home, causing significant damage.
The suspect was identified as a 35-year-old woman from Victoria who was known to the Langford resident she terrorized.
VicPD were later able to locate the suspect and arrest her.
She was held in custody and brought before the court to be charged with two counts of mischief to property, one count of mischief over $5,000, one count of assault with a weapon and one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm.
After her court hearing, she was released with strict conditions to not contact the victim and not possess any weapons or firearms.
She has also been banned from the City of Langford.
The victim of this road rage incident was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries as a result of the motorcycle impact.
