The Regina Police Service is investigating a collision this afternoon that involved two vehicles, one of which was a police car. Fortunately there were no serious injuries.
The collision occurred around 12:30 p.m. on Monday, December 5, 2016. A marked police car, with one police officer, was south-bound on Elphinstone Street, approaching the intersection of 13th Avenue. The officer was responding to a Priority 2 call: a person who called the Communications Centre to say they were being followed by a group of people. The officer had his lights and siren activated and entered the intersection at the same time as an east-bound truck, driven by an adult male. The two vehicles collided in the intersection. The police officer was transported to hospital as a precaution; the driver of the truck was unhurt.
The collision will be investigated like any other two-vehicle collision. Because of the involvement of the police vehicle, the investigation is subject to review by a supervisor and then further scrutiny by the Regina Police Service Collision Review Board.
