On Saturday night in Langford, November 18, a Westshore RCMP Frontline officer was patrolling on Millstream Ave when they were flagged down by a witness who advised a vehicle had just rolled over down the street near Bear Mountain Parkway and Echo Valley Drive.

That was about 9:50 pm.

The officer attended the scene and located a white 2018 Toyota Corolla flipped over onto its roof. A 22-year-old man who had been driving the car managed to get out of the vehicle. RCMP says he sustained minor injuries.

The driver provided a sample of his breath into a roadside screening device with a fail result and was determined to be over the legal limit of alcohol.

This was a single vehicle collision with no other passengers.


The vehicle was impounded for 30 days and the driver issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Driving Prohibition under the Motor Vehicle Act.

Reminder to plan a safe ride home:

“This driver is lucky to have walked away from such a serious collision with only minor injuries,” said Cpl Nancy Saggar, Media Relations Officer, West Shore RCMP. In a news release today she adds that “with the holiday season upon us, we would like to remind motorists to please plan for a safe ride home”.

Driver sobriety road blocks:

Over the next coming weeks, you will see West Shore RCMP Frontline and Traffic Unit officers at road blocks around the Westshore checking for driver sobriety.
