Update: RCMP vehicle involved in collision

Penticton RCMP are investigating a collision involving one of their own Tahoe SUVs

Penticton RCMP investigate the scene of a collision on Nov. 27 involving one of their own vehicles.

The Penticton RCMP are continuing their investigation into the collision between a marked police vehicle and a private vehicle Sunday afternoon in Penticton.

Around 4 p.m. Sunday (Nov. 27) a collision occurred between an on-duty marked SUV police vehicle and a pick-up truck on Main Street and Warren Avenue. The impact also caused the police vehicle to come into contact with a second vehicle in the immediate vicinity of the initial collision.

Although there was substantial damage to the police vehicle and the pick-up truck, neither the officer nor the occupants of the two other vehicles suffered injuries which required immediate medical attention at the time of the collision, RCMP said.

The Penticton RCMP Traffic Unit investigators are continuing their investigation into the collision.

Anyone who has witnessed the collision or has information regarding the matter who have not yet spoken to police, are asked to contact Cpl. Ted Manchulenko of the Penticton RCMP at 250-492-4300.

No further information is being released at this time, pending the completion of the investigation.
