Car hit by pickup, pushed onto lawn in Colwood; police suspect drug-impairment

A car was pushed onto a front lawn after being hit by a pickup truck early Friday, and West Shore RCMP believe drug impairment was a factor.

Police received several calls about the crash about 3:40 a.m. The car had been parked on Haida Drive in Colwood and surveillance video provided by a witness shows the pickup crashing into it. The 34-year-old woman at the wheel then backs up and leaves the scene.
