Police ticket driver after van found perched on logs near Esplanade in Oak Bay

Ticket issued for Drive Without Consideration with a fine of $196

A van launched onto Willows Beach prompted a suspicious vehicle call to Oak Bay Police Department late Sunday night.

When police attended they spotted a van perched on the sandy beach on top of logs. A sober male driver indicated he made the turn in the roundabout and inadvertently pressed the gas pedal out of the turn and mounted the sidewalk curb onto the beach. The vehicle was several meters away from the elevated sidewalk.

The driver was issued a ticket for Drive Without Consideration with a fine of $196.

A tow truck carefully removed the minivan from the beach onto the roadway.
