Sunshine Coast RCMP reported the following this week:

• On Aug. 26, police attended a single-vehicle collision in the 3100 block of Highway 101 in Roberts Creek, after a vehicle lost control, rolled and smashed into several rocks before coming to a rest upside down on the side of the road.

The lone driver and occupant advised he'd been upset and was travelling too fast. The male was taken to hospital to be checked over and issued a violation ticket for drive without due care and a 24-hour driving suspension.

• Between Aug. 20 and 24, a vandal smashed out a window of a vehicle parked in the 16600 block of Backeddy Road in Egmont. No other damage was reported and nothing was stolen.

• On Aug. 26, police attended a single-vehicle collision involving a building in the 1100 block of Highway 101 in Gibsons, after a vehicle drove into a wall and broke a window before coming to a stop.

Paramedics attended the accident scene, as the male driver appeared to be suffering from a medical condition. The driver, who advised he had mixed up the gas and brake pedals, was taken to hospital for assessment. A driver's licence medical review has been requested.

• On Aug. 28, a thief stole a bike left unlocked outside a business in the 5700 block of Teredo Street in Sechelt.

The solid white Brodee mountain bike had a broken speedometer on it. Anyone with any information about this theft is asked to contact RCMP at 604-885-2266 and reference file 14-6146.

• Late on Aug. 27, a driver pulled into the wrong driveway in the 3700 block of Highway 101 in Roberts Creek, where police happened to be attending an unrelated call for service.

Police detected the odour of liquor on the driver’s breath and issued him a roadside alcohol-screening test, which resulted in a ‘warn’ reading.

The driver, who advised he'd consumed one beer two hours prior, was issued a three-day immediate roadside prohibition.

• On Aug. 27, staff at a business in the 5600 block of Cowrie Street in Sechelt turned in a new and valuable looking bike that had been left propped up by the front door. Police attended a local bike shop to see if they might recognize the bike and determined the owner worked nearby. The owner was located and after some discussion, the owner realized he'd forgotten he'd ridden his bike to the business and left it behind when he walked home.
