A Victoria Police cruiser responding to a domestic assault call ended up in a collision Tuesday.

VicPD said in a release that their police car was travelling northbound on Quadra Street shortly before 6:30 p.m., with its lights and siren on, when an SUV heading westbound on Hillside Avenue struck the police vehicle on the passenger side.

All other vehicles had stopped for the police cruiser.

Officer Transported to Hospital

The officer was transported to the hospital and was released later the same night, while both occupants of the SUV were assessed at the scene and determined to have no injuries.

The investigation into the crash is still ongoing.

The officer was responding to reports of a man attacking a female.

According to reports, the two then walked off together to Topaz Park where the man was eventually apprehended. No other details are currently available.
