Charges for cops in crash?

Charges are being considered in a collision between two Vancouver Police vehicles that sent five people to hospital.

Two civilians and three officers were injured in the crash last June in downtown Vancouver involving a police cruiser and van, which struck two pedestrians, CTV News reports.

The VPD said the vehicles were responding to an emergency call when the collision occurred. Both vehicles had their emergency lights and sirens on.

“The car was going incredibly fast, the van wasn’t going so fast,” witness Arthur Watt told CTV at the time. “They slammed into each other and it was just amazing to witness. It was just crazy.”

The Independent Investigations Office has requested consideration of charges against both drivers.
