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.
