A Vancouver police officer has pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention when he hit a pedestrian in January 2018.
According to the B.C. Prosecution Service, Const. Andrew Peters was found guilty on Tuesday.
Documents from the Independent Investigations Office of B.C. said the incident took place on the evening of Jan. 6, 2018, when Peters was driving an unmarked police SUV near Knight street and 20 Avenue.
The SUV was headed south when it hit the pedestrian, who was sent to hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
Peters will have to pay a $1,500 fine, a $225 victim surcharge fee and is prohibited from driving for 12 months, according to the prosecution service.
Correction: An earlier version of this story said the officer was found guilty. In reality, he pleaded guilty.
