No serious injuries after truck crashes into RCMP

Two taken to hospital after truck crashed into RCMP vehicle at intersection of Victoria Rd and the Trans-Canada in Revelstoke Friday.

Two people were taken to hospital for precautionary measures after a truck crashed into an RCMP vehicle at the intersection of Victoria Road and the Trans-Canada Highway in Revelstoke on Friday.

Two RCMP officers were on their way to a domestic incident in Columbia Park at around 5:30 p.m. when the accident occurred, said RCMP Staff Sgt. Jacquie Olsen.

The RCMP vehicles were crossing the Trans-Canada against a red light when the second vehicle, was hit by an eastbound red Dodge Ram 1500.

“I stopped, they didn’t,” a witness told the Times Review. He said the police had their lights on when they cross the intersection.

Another RCMP officer came to the scene while one of the first two continued to the domestic. Fire Rescue Services and BC Ambulance also attended.

The driver-side door of the police SUV was heavily dented and the window was shattered. The shattered glass lay in the intersection until it was swept away. The Dodge truck had damage to the front-end.

Paramedics tended to the driver of the truck and placed him in an ambulance. The RCMP officer who was hit was also taken to hospital. Olsen said there didn’t appear to be any serious injuries but they were taken to the hospital to be re-assessed.

She added that an investigator from the Southeast District RCMP would be called in to investigate the crash.
