Vehicle crashes into pet store window in Colwood

Mother and child occupants of car not injured in crash

A car attempting to park crashed into the front of World’s Exotic Pets in Hatley Park Plaza at around 3:30 p.m. Monday, taking out most of the store’s front window.

West Shore RCMP Const. Peter Koutougas said although the matter is still under investigation, it appears to be driver error on the part of the female driver of a Kia Forte. The only occupants of the car, a woman and her child, were not injured, although B.C. Ambulance attended initially.

Colwood Fire Rescue will remain on scene to remove the rest of the glass for the safety of the public and secure the building, said Assistant Fire Chief Greg Chow.
