The crash happened around 2 a.m. Friday in Queen's Park, next to the Oak Bay Marina.

Police say the man and his passenger suffered only minor injuries.

Police arrived at the scene and "quickly determined that there were reasonable grounds to suspect drug use by driver," according to Oak Bay Police Deputy Chief Ray Bernoties.
