On April 13th just after 1:30 p.m. the Sooke RCMP were called to a single vehicle collision in the 7500 block of West Coast Road.

Sooke RCMP front line members attended the scene and located a grey mid 90’s Nissan SUV that appeared to have been travelling westbound when it crossed the center line & opposing lane of traffic, left the road way, continued down a small embankment and collided with a tree.

Witnesses to the collision immediately attempted lifesaving efforts to the man until they were relieved by first responders says Sooke RCMP Sergeant Kevin Shaw I’m very grateful for the contributions and lifesaving efforts of all involved, witnesses and first responders

BC Ambulance was on scene to administer first aid to the vehicle’s only occupant, however, the Sooke area man was pronounced deceased at the scene. A collision analyst is working alongside the Sooke RCMP in determining the cause of the collision.

The BC Coroners Service is also investigating to determine how, where, when and by what means he came to his death. Due to the privacy of the deceased, neither organization will be releasing or confirming identity.

The cause of the collision remains under investigation, and the Sooke RCMP are asking any witnesses who may have seen the driving behaviour of this vehicle prior to collision to please contact the at 250-642-5241
