The impact was intense enough that a parked car ended up on the front lawn of a home late in the evening on Monday night February 8

Around 9:56 pm the West Shore RCMP responded to a report of a collision near the 2300-block of Selwyn Drive in Langford.

Officers arrived on scene and determined that a 2015 Fiat 500 which was travelling at a high rate of speed collided with two parked vehicles.

One of the vehicles, a Hyundai Elantra, was rear-ended. A second parked vehicle, a 2006 Audi A3, was impacted fully. The impact of the collision was so intense that the parked Audi was pushed nearly 30 feet from its position on the roadway onto the front lawn of a nearby residence.

Both parked vehicles incurred extensive damage and were towed away.

The Fiat responsible for the crash was uninsured. Its two occupants — a 31-year-old male driver and a 41-year-old passenger — both suffered major injuries and were transported to the hospital.

“The driver was exhibiting symptoms consistent with alcohol impairment,” says Cst. Nancy Saggar, West Shore RCMP Media Relations Officer. “Charges are forthcoming as police continue the investigation into impaired driving, dangerous driving causing bodily harm as well as excessive speed and no insurance,” she said in a release today.
