Two people were in hospital at press time Wednesday, following a collision between a police cruiser and a Ford Mustang.

The incident happened just after 11 p.m. on Tuesday night, on Hwy. 7 near Bodnar Road in Agassiz.

Abbotsford Police Department, who were called in on Wednesday to investigate the incident, said it was a Chilliwack RCMP member involved. The Mustang was driven by a 20-year-old male, with a 19-year-old male passenger. The pair was airlifted to a hospital and the driver was in critical condition on Wednesday morning. The passenger was in serious condition. The RCMP member was treated in hospital and has since been released.

The accident resulted in a closure of the highway, so collision reconstructionists could assess the scene. The highway remained closed until about 10 a.m. Wednesday morning.

“Our objective is to complete a thorough and comprehensive investigation which includes all available facts and evidence,” APD Constable Ian MacDonald.
