An unmarked police vehicle was involved in a collision with another vehicle in Maple Ridge on Tuesday morning.

At approximately 11 a.m., emergency responders were called to the scene at the intersection of 203rd Street and Maple Crescent.

An ambulance was dispatched, and the officer involved was complaining of knee pain.

There were two other people involved in the accident, but both declined medical assistance at the scene. The unmarked police vehicle was a Nissan, and it was involved in a collision with a Chevy Traverse.

Ridge Meadows RCMP Const. Julie Klaussner confirmed one of the vehicles involved a police officer.

”One vehicle involved in the collision was an unmarked police vehicle,” she said. “All parties on scene sustained non life threating injuries and the cause of the collision is still under investigation.”

In addition to the ambulance, there were three marked police cruisers and two fire trucks at the scene.

More details as they become available.
