Woman arrested after Nanoose Bay incident

A 53 year-old Nanoose Bay woman was arrested for failing to remain at the scene of a collision Friday afternoon on the Island Highway at Arlington Road.

A news release from RCMP’s E Divison said police were called to the scene after a reported a hit and run. A late model, black SUV had reportedly entered onto the highway from a parking lot and into the lane with oncoming traffic. An older model brown Honda was travelling southbound on the Island Highway, when the SUV pulled out, and into its path. The driver was unable to stop and collided with the front quarter panel of the SUV, causing significant damage to both vehicles. While the driver of the Honda pulled over, the driver of the SUV failed to stop, and was last seen driving on Parker Road.

The driver of the Black SUV was arrested at her residence a short time later, said police, who also said the investigation is continuing, and charges are being considered.
