A Port Mann Traffic officer and three others were sent to hospital after a police vehicle was rear-ended.

A police vehicle was rear-ended and an RCMP member taken to hospital early Sunday morning.

On Aug. 14, shortly before 8 am, a police vehicle was rear-ended on Highway 1 westbound, between 232 Street and Glover Road, said Sgt. Annie Linteau.

“The RCMP member’s vehicle was parked on the side of the highway and awaiting the arrival of a tow-truck following a single vehicle rollover,” she said.

The RCMP member was taken to local hospital with serious injuries. All three occupants of the vehicle that rear-ended the police vehicle have been transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The RCMP member’s vehicle had its emergency lights activated. The initial information from the police said it was a marked vehicle but later said it was unmarked with its

emergency light going.

A number of police resources are at scene investigating, including members of the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (ICARS).

“That portion of the highway is currently closed for an undetermined amount of time, Linteau said.

The police are asking any witnesses to contact them.

Police are continuing their investigation of the incident and have since received information that a witness may have been following the pick-up truck that rear-ended the police vehicle, Linteau said.

“This person apparently briefly stopped at the scene but left before investigators were able to obtain their particulars,” she explained.

Investigators are hoping this person can contact the Port Mann RCMP at 604-526-9744.

Police are also continuing their investigation of the single vehicle roll-over. The status of that driver is unknown at this time.
