No one was hurt Tuesday morning, when a driver, believed to be in her 50s, lost control of her vehicle on the four-lane section of Highway 14, near Humpback Road, near Sooke.

The driver crossed four lanes of traffic and back again, barely missing at least three other vehicles.

A witness, who was driving his six-year-old to school, said the woman claimed she was “late for work.”

Special thanks to Julie-Ann Woods for sharing the video.
