The Independent Investigations Office has been deployed after a driver collided with Vancouver police vehicles several times on March 3, suffering “serious injuries.”
According to a release, officers observed a suspicious vehicle in the area of 39th Avenue and Cambie Street early Tuesday morning, around 2 a.m. The vehicle then drove off “and had several collisions with police vehicles.”
After being placed under arrest, the male driver was transported to hospital where it was determined he had suffered serious injuries.
The IIO is investigating to determine what role, if any, the officers’ actions or inaction may have played in the injuries.
