Marked RCMP vehicle collides with van in Burnaby, B.C.

BURNABY, B.C. - RCMP say one of its marked vehicles collided with a van in Burnaby on Tuesday night after officers shared a description of it after the driver allegedly drove over a grassed area and a curb.

Officers in the vehicle involved in the collision were medically assessed for non-life threatening injuries.

RCMP say its officers first noticed the van parked near a tennis court on Patterson Avenue.

They didn't follow the van after sending out the description, but about 25 minutes later police say it was involved in the collision.

The driver of the van was treated by emergency responders and taken to hospital.

The Independent Investigations Office, which looks into any police incidents that involve injuries or death, has begun an investigation of the incident.

LETTER: Not impressed, Mr. Dyas
  OPINION I’m already weary of Tom Dyas’s attacks throwing Kelowna City staff, council, and Mayor Colin Basran under the bus. To lead a city as mayor, it takes the ability to collaborate and work as a team.
