Victoria, BC – Investigators are searching for a driver in an incident that occurred last Friday morning involving a vehicle and three pedestrians.

Officers are looking for the driver of a dark grey 2005 to 2010 four door Ford Focus sedan that was involved in what witnesses are describing as a “road rage” incident at Broad and Johnson streets around 8:30 on the morning of Friday, August 11th. The driver of the vehicle is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 45 to 56 years-old with short grey hair.

Witnesses reported that as part of an interaction between three pedestrians and the driver of the vehicle, the back window of the car and the tail lights were smashed. Police were called, but the driver, vehicle and two of the pedestrians departed the intersection before officers arrived. Investigators found evidence on scene consistent with witness descriptions of significant damage to the vehicle.

Officers are hoping to speak with driver to confirm his well-being and to get his perspective on what occurred.
