RCMP vehicle crashes into hydro pole and storefront in Surrey
Global is reporting that "RCMP are investigating after one of their vehicles crashed into a hydro pole and a business in Surrey early Sunday morning. Mounties said a white Ford pickup belonging to the Lower Mainland RCMP was travelling westbound on Fraser Highway around 7 a.m., when the driver lost control after the vehicle’s left rear wheels dropped into a manhole. The pickup veered off the road and struck a hydro pole before colliding into a storefront in the 18500-block of Fraser Highway. The police vehicle caught fire and flames spread to the business."
Not to worry. He was just on his way home from an all nighter at the bar in police headquaters. No blood alcohol samples will be taken of course.
