A Fiat driver could face several charges after driving into two parked cars in Langford earlier this month.

On Feb. 8 around 10 p.m., West Shore RCMP were called to a crash in the 2300-block of Selwyn Drive. When police arrived, they determined the driver of a white 2015 Fiat 500 was driving at a high speed when he collided with two parked vehicles, hitting one of them – a 2006 Audi A3 – so hard it was launched 30 feet onto the front lawn of a nearby home.

RCMP said the driver, a 31-year-old man, showed signs of alcohol impairment and faces forthcoming charges of impaired driving, dangerous driving causing bodily harm, excessive speed and no insurance.
