Calgary, AB,

Police vehicle involved in collision

An officer with the Calgary Police Service collided with another vehicle at the intersection of Heritage Drive and Elbow Drive S.W., while driving to an emergency call on Friday afternoon.

The Traffic Section will be investigating the collision to determine exactly what occurred, but it is currently believed that the police vehicle was trying to make a turn with emergency lights activated at the time of the collision.

The officer in the vehicle was responding to a panic alarm that had been pressed inside a residence in the community of Chinook Drive, after attempts to call the occupants of the house were unsuccessful. Other officers later confirmed that everyone inside the residence was okay and the alarm had been pressed inadvertently.

Two adults and one child in the other vehicle were transported to hospital as a precaution. The police officer was not injured.

Roads in the area were closed, but they have now reopened.
