August 15, 2016 8:38 A.M.

A collision involving a police cruiser in pursuit on the east Trans-Canada tied up traffic but caused no serious injuries in Valleyview Monday morning, Aug. 15.

The police officer involved had activated lights and siren, then attempted a u-turn on a green light at Grand Boulevard and Hwy. 1 while pursuing a violator. A third vehicle ran a red light and crashed into the police cruiser.

A u-turn is legal in such circumstances as long as the driver ensures it is safe to do so.

The highway remained open on both directions but drivers were advised to expect intermittent one-lane traffic as the accident site is cleared of vehicles and debris.
