A woman facing criminal charges in connection with a crash last June at Buena Vista Avenue and Oxford Street in White Rock is to be back in court next week.
Police announced charges against Julie Elizabeth Selbie – theft of motor vehicle, care or control of motor vehicle while impaired, care or control of motor vehicle with over .08 and dangerous operation of motor vehicle – on Dec. 8, three weeks after they were sworn.
The crash occurred just before 5:30 a.m. on June 3, when a four-door Honda Civic with a green ‘Novice’ magnet on the bumper hit the home of an Oxford Street residence. It came to rest upside-down in the driveway, leaning against the corner of the home.
First responders extracted a young female from the vehicle. Conscious at the time, she was airlifted to hospital. They said a dog that was in the vehicle was treated for injuries and was expected to recover.
It marked the second time that a vehicle had crashed into the house in three years, homeowner Bob Berger told PAN at the time. In October 2012, a BMW driven by a then-23-year-old smashed through one of the walls of Berger’s home, causing extensive damage.
According to police records, Selbie was born in 1994 and at the time of the crash was a White Rock resident.
She first appeared in Surrey Provincial Court on Nov. 27. Her next appearance is set for Jan. 28.
