He entered the intersection of Oak St and Cloverdale Ave on a green light, and was hit by another vehicle that was heading east on Cloverdale.

Fortunately, neither the offending driver, nor the police officer were injured.

According to Saanich Police spokesperson, Sgt. Julie Fast, the police vehicle sustained minor damages as the collision occurred at slow speed.

However the other car had more damage to its bumper and front wheel and therefore had to be towed from the scene.

Sgt. Fast told Victoria Buzz that the other driver was fully cooperative and has been issued a violation ticket for disobeying a red light.
