A 56-year-old man seen driving erratically on the Trans-Canada Highway was arrested after a minor crash Sunday, and found to have a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit.

Police are looking for witnesses who saw a blue 1992 Chevy S10 pickup, described as “a rust bucket,” driving dangerously on the highway around 6 p.m., on Sept. 11.

The truck rear-ended a vehicle at McKenzie Avenue. The driver of that vehicle called police after the pickup truck driver indicated he wasn’t going to stick around.

When police arrived, four other motorists had pulled to the side of the road to indicate they had seen the suspect truck driving dangerously near Spencer Road in Langford.

Anyone with information is asked to call Saanich police at 250-475-4321.
