Officer nearly struck while investigating crash on TCH

An RCMP officer was nearly struck by a passing motorist on the TCH near the Holyrood Access on Thursday.

The officer was investigating a single-vehicle crash and was in a marked police vehicle with emergency lights activated.

A vehicle passing by the scene of the crash ran over a number of pylons that were placed around the patrol vehicle and nearly struck the police vehicle.

The vehicle came to a stop and the officer approached the driver, a 79-year-old man, who was laughing at what had just happened.

The man was ticketed for failing to move over and for driving without due care and attention.

A request for a medical review of his driver’s licence has been issued.
