Dec 11 2011
A 20-year-old Sooke woman was cut out of her car by firefighters after it hit a telephone pole in the 7700 block of Westcoast Road Saturday.
Witnesses told police the 2011 Hyundai Accent slid as it went around a bend about 9: 30 a.m. The car was briefly in the opposite lane, where it nearly collided with an oncoming vehicle, before swerving and crashing into the pole.
Sooke firefighters cut through the roof of the vehicle to get the woman out. She was taken to hospital and treated for minor injuries. The woman was later charged with driving without due care. - T
