On the morning of August 2, at 8:30 a.m., an RCMP police vehicle was involved in a collision on Highway 3 in Cypress County.  The police vehicle was driving eastbound, passing Township 120.  A truck turning on to Highway 3 from Township 120 drove in front of the police vehicle, resulting in a collision. The lone occupant of the truck was not injured.

A police officer from the Bow Island RCMP Detachment sustained minor injuries and was transported the Medicine Hat Hospital where he was treated and released a short time later.

Traffic is currently being re-routed on Township 120, and Highway 3 remains open. A collision analyst from RCMP Traffic Services will be attending the scene to investigate.

If you witnessed this collision, or have any information, please contact Redcliff RCMP at (403) 548-2288.
