Saanich police are contemplating charges under the Motor Vehicle Act against a 22-year-old woman from Richmond following a collision Wednesday morning in Saanich that sent a 58-year-old Victoria motorcyclist to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The woman was travelling in her car westbound on Royal Oak Drive when she performed a U-turn near Smokey Smith Place in front of the man’s motorcycle also travelling on westbound. “The motorcycle struck the driver’s side of the car,” said Sgt. Jereme Leslie of the Saanich Police.

B.C. Ambulance crews carried the man to hospital.

The incident happened at around 8:30 a.m. and impacted traffic for about an hour.
