A driver is facing possible impaired driving charges after a high speed collision with a power box on Pacific Drive Saturday night.
On Aug. 4 just after 11 p.m. Delta police responded to the report of a collision in the 1200 block of Pacific Drive in Tsawwassen.
The collision caused a power outage in the area.
“Upon arrival police located a Porsche which had struck a power box knocking out power to the area,” said DPD public affairs coordinator Cris Leykauf. “The Porsche received fairly extensive damage as a result of the collision. There was no driver on site when police arrived.”
Leykauf said police contained the area and tracked the suspected driver to a nearby wooded area, with the assistance of a police dog.
She said the suspected driver was arrested for driving while impaired. The driver then blew into the approved screening device, and received a fail result, and was issued a 90-day immediate roadside orohibition. The Porsche will be impounded for 30 days.
