A  collision this morning between a police car and another vehicle sent an officer to hospital and closed down a portion of the area around Blanshard and Broughton streets for several hours.

Victoria police said a marked police vehicle, part of the Integrated Road Safety Unit, made a left turn from Broughton onto Blanshard about 9:20 a.m. before colliding with a vehicle headed north on Blanshard.

The officer was released from hospital later in the day, while the other driver was treated at the scene.

Investigators are trying to determine who had the light when the crash occurred, said Victoria police Const. Mike Russell. Witnesses are asked to call the Victoria police department at 250-995-7654.
