  • Apr. 7, 2017 5:18 p.m.

Red Deer RCMP are investigating the circumstances of a collision yesterday afternoon after a motorcycle refused to stop for a peace officer and collided with a mini-van.

Shortly before 6 p.m. on April 6th, a Community Peace Officer was conducting traffic enforcement on 40th Ave., north of 55A St. when he clocked a motorcycle driving southbound on 40th Ave. at just over 90 km/hr in a 60 zone.

The peace officer, who was on foot and in uniform, stepped forward and indicated that the motorcycle should pull over; at that point, the motorcycle accelerated away from the peace officer and collided with the rear end of a mini-van that was travelling southbound on 40th Ave.

The motorcycle continued to slide and subsequently struck a truck that was also travelling southbound.

The driver of the motorcycle was taken to hospital to be treated for numerous injuries that are not life-threatening. The drivers of the mini-van and truck were not injured in the collisions.

Police continue to investigate the circumstances of this incident and will issue an update as more information becomes available.
