Peninsula woman injured in Oak Bay crash

Oak Bay driver ticketed, 61-year-old Saanichton woman injured in April 12 afternoon accident

A Central Saanich woman suffered injuries after a car crash in Oak Bay around 3:40 p.m. on April 12.

A 34-year-old Oak Bay man driving a Volkswagon Cabriolet eastbound on Lansdowne Road apparently crossed Beach Drive without first checking to make sure the road was clear.

The Volkswagon struck a Hyundai Santa Fe driven by a 69-year-old Central Saanich man. The Hyundai driver’s 61-year-old passenger suffered injuries to her arm and hand during the crash.

The Oak Bay driver was issued a ticket for leaving a stop sign when unsafe.
