Two police patrol vehicles collided in downtown Vancouver on Friday night, injuring two pedestrians and three officers.

According to Vancouver Police, the incident occurred at approximately 8:30 pm when officers in two police vehicles were responding with lights and sirens to an emergency call in the city centre. They collided with each other at the intersection of Smithe Street and Howe Street.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash. Two female pedestrians, both in their 30s, were also injured in the incident.

A release states all five individuals, including the three officers, were taken to hospital for the assessment of their non-life threatening injuries and they have since been released.

The BC Independent Investigations Office is investigating the incident to “determine if the injuries meet the threshold of serious harm.”

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to call the VPD’s Collision Investigation Unit at 604-717-3012.
