Last week, the Sooke RCMP received 115 calls for service. The number was slightly high, but the events were relatively low key.
On July 22 at 9 p.m. a vehicle was stolen from Gordon’s Beach. The blue 2005 Saturn was ultimately recovered, but no one has been charged with the theft.
July 24 was a day slated for road accidents. At 11:10 a.m., a three vehicle accident occurred on Sooke Rd, just in front of Saseenos elementary school. (photo on left)
According to eye witness Holly Weston of Sooke, a westbound vehicle was turning onto Idlemore, and vehicles were coming to a stop.
The Bayline truck (the big one) failed to stop on time, and it crashed into the Alpine truck, which in turn ran into the Mercedes.
No serious injuries. And the road was cleared by noon according to a tweet from the Sooke Fire Department.
Later that same day just after 4:00 in the afternoon, a vehicle turning from Woodlands Road onto Sooke Road hit a motorcycle.
The rider was thrown from the bike. The rider was treated for non-threatening life injuries. The incident is still under investigation.
