Wrench-wielding Road Rage driver arrested.



A driver allegedly hit another car with a metal wrench in Langford in a case of highway road rage during Thursday’s morning commute, according to police.

West Shore RCMP officers were called to a reported disturbance near the Trans-Canada Highway and Millstream Road off-ramp when they learned an argument took place between someone driving a Honda Civic and another driving a Toyota RAV4 while stopped in traffic.

Things escalated when the driver of the RAV4 allegedly exited his vehicle carrying a large metal wrench and struck the Civic before he got back into his vehicle and headed toward Saanich.

RCMP advised Saanich Police that the suspect vehicle was headed in their direction.

Saanich officers caught up with the driver near Mackenzie Avenue and Glanford Road, arresting the man for mischief under $5,000 and driving without due care and attention.

The driver’s vehicle was towed from the scene.

No physical injuries were reported, but the arrest briefly caused traffic backups in the area of Mackenzie and Glanford while officers attended the scene.

West Shore RCMP is still investigating the Langford road rage incident and has not released any additional information at this time.
