Charges were sworn Tuesday against the driver involved in a high-speed car crash that resulted in the death of a 20-year-old Saanich woman last weekend in Victoria.
Early Sunday morning, a man lost control while travelling southbound on Blanshard Street and slammed into a light standard at Bay Street at approximately 130 km/h, according to witness accounts.
The vehicle's passenger was dead when paramedics arrived on scene.
