Witnesses sought in road rage hit-and-run

Driver charged with failure to stay at scene of an accident

Victoria police hope witnesses will come forward to describe a road rage incident that happened Wednesday (Aug. 24).

At about 1 p.m., a woman driving a grey Honda Civic apparently cut off another woman in a black Chevrolet Aveo heading east on Craigflower Road, after turning from Lampson Street.

The Aveo rammed the back of the Civic. The two women proceeded to yell at each other while stopped, waiting for construction on Craigflower.

The driver of the Aveo then fled the scene, but VicPD officers pulled her over nearby. She got a ticket for failing to remain at the scene, but police are considering more charges if witnesses can provide a clearer description of the collision and ensuing confrontation.

Anyone with information is asked to call VicPD at 250-995-7654.
