Distracted driver slams into Vancouver Police vehicle

Distracted driver slams into Vancouver Police vehicle
WatchVancouver Police officer struck by distracted driver while working on distracted driving campaign

Vancouver Police have released dashcam video of scary incident last month that injured a VPD constable during a traffic stop.

The video taken on September 23 shows a police vehicle stopped on the road’s shoulder, lights flashing, having pulled over another driver.

It then shows a car zooming past the vehicle with the dashcam at high speed and, moments later, slamming right into the stopped police vehicle.

Police say the officer was working on a distracted driving campaign, targeting unsafe driving behaviour, when their vehicle was struck by a distracted driver.

VPD want the images to serve as vivid reminder to “drive with care and keep your eyes on the road.”
