A young couple asleep in their bed got the scare of their lives this morning when a car crashed through their bedroom wall.
Around 2 a.m. a red Jaguar was travelling north on Tillicum Road toward Carey Road and missed the turn, clipping a fence, striking a parked car and then crashing through the front of a home.
The car pushed the couple’s bed a few feet in the bedroom, but neither of them were injured.
The driver of the Jaguar fled on foot, but was located by police a few blocks away and arrested. He was suffering from non-life threatening head injuries.
Saanich police Sgt. Scott Treble says the 51-year-old driver had been drinking. Police are now considering charges of impaired driving and failing to remain at the scene.
