Criminal charges in Oxford Street crash

Four charges have been laid in connection with a dramatic June 3 crash in White Rock.

Charges have been laid in connection with a crash last June at Buena Vista Avenue and Oxford Street that ended with a car against a house and a woman airlifted to hospital.

Julie Elizabeth Selbie appeared in Surrey Provincial Court last month charged with 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.

White Rock RCMP Staff Sgt. Lesli Roseberry said the charges – sworn Nov. 17 and shared with Peace Arch News Dec. 8 – followed a “lengthy” police investigation.

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, said homeowner Bob Berger. 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.

Roseberry said records show Selbie was born in 1994 and at the time of the crash was a White Rock resident.

Selbie is next due in court on Dec. 11.
