A Comox Valley RCMP officer along with another driver had to be extracted from their vehicles Monday evening following a crash near the entrance to North Island College.
Around 8:30 p.m., Const. Anne Bock in a marked vehicle was returning to the detachment when her vehicle was struck by a Jeep.
According to Staff Sgt. Andrew Isles, there was no call in progress when the officer was driving.
He noted it appears a vehicle travelling east on Ryan Road crossed the centre line and struck the police vehicle.
Initial reports indicate Bock suffered multiple injuries, possibly including broken legs and a broken arm. She was transported to St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Comox.
Isles added it appears the driver in the other vehicle was unconscious and in considerable pain. The driver of the second vehicle was airlifted to hospital in Vancouver.
A collision reconstructionist from Campbell River was brought in to determine the cause of the accident.
Isles added police are examining the evidence to determine if charges will be laid.
