Vancouver Police vehicle targeted in collision

VANCOUVER Police are investigating an alleged intentional collision on Friday evening after a man reversed a pick-up truck into a police vehicle. There were no injuries to anyone involved.

Just before 7:30 p.m., a 38-year-old man driving a pick-up truck slowly pulled up in front of Vancouver Police headquarters on West 5th Avenue at Cambie before speeding around the block. Officers who were parked in the area watched as the man allegedly drove through the stop sign on West 5th Avenue at Yukon, nearly hitting a cyclist.

The man then stopped his truck in front of a marked police car on West 5th Avenue, put his vehicle in reverse and rammed the police car behind‎ him.

The man exited the truck and was confrontational with officers before he was taken into custody.

Officers are on scene trying to determine what may have led to the man’s actions.
