Driver injured, car damaged after head-on collision with light pole

Man taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries

A vehicle travelling northbound on Government Street slammed into a light pole on Tuesday, injuring the male driver.

Victoria police found the man still inside his car at Government Street and Hillside Avenue around 4:24 a.m. on Dec. 27, conscious and breathing but disoriented with injuries to his head and hands, Deputy Chief John Ducker wrote on the Victoria Police Department’s operations blog. 

The driver was taken to Victoria General Hospital with non-life threatening wounds.

The investigation continues, but police say it appears the driver crossed Hillside Avenue while travelling north on Government Street when his car hit a light pole head-on.
