    Default Not The Best Way To Park The Car

    Cop, young driver OK after Trans-Canada Highway collision

    Police are investigating a crash between an RCMP cruiser and a civilian vehicle.

    The wreck happened just before 1 p.m. on Thursday on the Trans-Canada Highway near Chemainus.

    The police cruiser was travelling northbound in the left-hand lane near Porter's Farm, with lights and siren activated in an attempt to catch a motorist identified as a possible violator.

    “A series of civilian motorists were travelling in the right lane, allowing the police vehicle to pass,” Sgt. Andre Dentoom, of South Island Traffic Services, said in a media release Friday.

    “While passing this series of vehicles, a single (2003 beige Toyota Corolla) vehicle operated by an 18-year-old woman from Duncan, moved from the right lane to the left lane, into the path of the police vehicle. The driver of the Toyota appears to have attempted to return to the right lane, but lost control of her car.”

    Dentoom said the officer attempted to avoid colliding with the Corolla, but was unsuccessful.

    Both drivers sustained minor injuries — they were examined by B.C. Ambulance Service paramedics at the scene, and released.

    A stretch of the highway in the northbound direction was closed for about an hour and a half as investigators detailed the scene, and the damaged vehicles were cleared.

    Police continue to investigate the crash, and no charges have been laid at this time.

    Multiple witnesses were interviewed, but police ask anyone who saw the crash and not already talked to police to call South Island Traffic Services at 250-416-0352.

    That cruiser looks like a camel hunkering down to release a passenger.

    How many of you can remember a time when someone did something that stupid in front of you? Me, me! Fortunately they're all OK.

    Talking Kneel Down Feature

    That's just Fords optional Kneel Down Feature for easier passenger exit. Similar to kneeling air ride suspension on large buses. Yuk Yuk Glad no one was seriously injured.

    I bet that 18 year old woman was blonde and had her cell phone in operation!!!

    The poor squad car and now that Ford has stopped making this vehicle, this past September, it looks sad. The shops can fix it up like new again!

    Looks like the cruiser has some excellent brakes, the ground pounder-nose drop option. From a mechanic's point of view, probably just a broken tie-rod at impact. A little welding here, some sledge-hammer motivation there, and a quick steam cleaning of the driver's seat, and she'll be ready to race again..
