Police are investigating a single-vehicle crash that occurred in the 1600-block of Ocean Park Road Sunday, when the driver of a northbound Audi R8 lost control on a corner and struck a brick gatepost.

The crash occurred at 7:30 p.m., and police say the driver, a 19-year-old man, was driving another man home from a nearby pub at the time.

Witness Lisa Parker told Peace Arch News the Audi “didn’t do well” after taking the corner, spun out on gravel and narrowly missed hitting children who were playing near the gatepost.
