Victoria police arrested an impaired driver after he slammed into a parked car on Haultain Street Monday night.
The 65-year-old driver slammed his Chrysler Sebring into a Chevy Cobalt parked on the street around 8:20 p.m.
Both cars sustained heavy damage. The driver was uninjured but was taken to hospital as a precaution. Once released from hospital, he was to be taken back to the police station to face criminal charges, police said.
Police across the region have been out in force this month, looking for impaired drivers during the Counter Attack campaign.
Saanich police nabbed five drunk drivers in three-and-a-half hours between late Friday night and early Saturday.
