No charges for 2 BC cops

No charges will be laid against two British Columbia police officers involved in separate crashes that resulted in civilians being seriously injured.

The province's criminal justice branch has decided that charges will not be approved in connection with the two incidents, which were investigated by the Independent Investigations Office.

Justice branch spokesman Neil MacKenzie says last June, a vehicle driven by a Mountie in Langley struck a male civilian, who sustained injuries.

In November, a Vancouver police officer's vehicle struck a female pedestrian who was crossing the street on the east side of the city.

The branch says it concluded there was no substantial likelihood that either police officer would be convicted of any offence.

MacKenzie says that as in all such cases, the branch isn't releasing information about the extent of the civilians' injuries.
