On Friday April 6, 2018 at 6:00AM Saanich Police responded to a crash at the intersection of Harriet Rd/Burnside Rd West.
A black four door Mercedes had been travelling west on Burnside Rd East when it drove through a red light at the intersection of Harriet Rd. A “T-Bone” style crash occurred when a Dodge Caravan travelling through the green light, north bound, on Harriet Rd struck the Mercedes. As a result of the impact the Mercedes was spun into two other vehicles waiting at the red light on the other side of the intersection on Burnside Rd West.
After the collision the Mercedes fled west bound on Burnside Rd West. The driver of the Caravan suffered, what appear to be, minor injuries.
Saanich Police are asking for the public’s help in locating the black Mercedes sedan, which likely has significant damage to the rear drivers side of the vehicle.
