An RCMP cruiser was involved in a two-vehicle crash in North Delta Friday.

The incident, between a B.C. Highway Patrol cruiser and a Volkswagen SUV, happened near Nordel Way and River Road, according to a Black Press Media freelancer on scene. The collision was in the northbound lanes.

“The police unit left the road crashed through a chain-link fence and slammed into the base of large, compacted soil pile causing significant damage to it,” noted the freelancer.

He added the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (ICARS) was on scene investigating.

BC RCMP said the Delta Police Department is investigating.

In an update Tuesday, DPD public affairs manager Cris Leykauf said only three people were in the SUV, not four as had been previously reported, and that no one involved received more than minor injuries.

Leykauf said the crash investigation is still ongoing.
