VicPD Cruiser Downtown

VicPD has closed the 900-block of Pandora avenue to traffic as several officers respond to a police incident in the area.

Just before 9 a.m. Monday morning, VicPD closed the area in front of Our Place Society and encouraged drivers to use alternative routes.

There are unconfirmed reports an officer was injured during the incident. One witness report stated a VicPD officer was trying to remove the driver from a vehicle, when the vehicle was driven into the officer, pinning him between the car and a dumpster.

Pandora Avenue remains closed between Quadra and Vancouver Streets.
