B.C.’s police watchdog has been called in to investigate after a pedestrian was hit by a police car in Squamish Tuesday night.
The man, in his late 20s, was struck by an on duty police officer travelling in an unmarked SUV at the intersection of Highway 99 and Garibaldi Way at around 10:30 p.m., according to the Independent Investigation Office.
The pedestrian remains in critical condition in hospital.
The IIO says the RCMP officer, who was working but not responding to a call, notified dispatch of the incident and began to provide medical assistance until emergency crews arrived.
The IIO says the investigation continues, and no further information will be released.
