A 17-year-old Qualicum teen who crashed his car into a tree early Wednesday morning is facing criminal impaired charges.
Oceanside RCMP was called around 12:48 a.m. after a 1990 Toyota Camry swerved off the road and hit a tree near Memorial Avenue and Village Way in Qualicum Beach.
The car was totalled but the teen was lucky to walk away with only minor injuries, Oceanside RCMP said.
The youth blew more than two times the legal limit and was charged with impaired driving under the Criminal Code.
The teen cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
