A 46-year-old man is facing charges of attempted murder in connection with a serious vehicle collision involving a former girlfriend.

At around 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 27, officers were called to the collision that occurred in the 1000 block of Gillespie Place. After speaking with the occupants of both vehicles, police determined there was a long history of domestic violence between two of the people involved.

Police believe one of the vehicles was driven by a man who intentionally drove at two other people in an attempt to harm them. The two people, however were not in the vehicle at the time of the collision but one of them suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Sebastien Normandin has been charged with two counts of attempted murder and one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. He remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 4.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or has any information related to the incident is asked to call 250-995-7654.
