While many were enjoying Thanksgiving Dinner – the VPD was called to three separate incidents where cars had crashed into buildings. Around 4:30 Sunday afternoon, police were called to the 3400 block of Dunbar Street arrived to find someone had driven their car into a real estate office.
It was quiet for the next few hours – but then just before 10 o’clock they responded to calls of a car into the front of a house in the 2500 block of East 22nd Avenue. No one was hurt in those incidents.
A third crash happened just a few minutes later at Cornwall and Arbutus. A woman – who may have had a pre-existing medical condition – lost control of her car and drove into the living room of a basement suite. She later died in hospital.
