Driver crashes car into building on Quadra Street

Emergency crews respond to single vehicle crash Thursday morning near Mason Street

No drugs or alcohol are suspected after a driver crashed into the Wildfire Bakery on Mason Street near Quadra Street Thursday morning.

Victoria Police Department Sgt. Shannon Perkins said that the driver, the lone occupant of the vehicle, was not sent to hospital.

Staff at the Wildfire Bakery reported hearing a bang, but did not immediately realize that it had been a car, attributing the noise to construction instead.

The building sustained minor damage, and the car was towed away shortly after the incident.

Island Health put forward a statement, but did not provide further details.

“We are aware of an incident involving an Island Health fleet vehicle and we are relieved to report no injuries,” wrote Island Health in an emailed statement. “The incident has been report per ICBC protocols [and] Island Health’s incident reporting policy.”
