Police officer was hit by a Ford pickup truck on Flood-Hope Road Thursday afternoon



A crash in the Richmond Hill area on Thursday shut down Flood-Hope Road in both directions for several hours.

Staff Sgt. Suki Manj said a Hope RCMP officer was travelling eastbound at about noon when he noticed a driver speeding in the opposite direction. When he went to conduct a U-turn, his cruiser was hit on the right front side by a Ford pickup truck heading towards Silver Creek. Manj said the preliminary investigation indicated that the officer had his emergency lights on before turning around.

“Our officer was doing active patrols in the Richmond Hill area due to recent complaints about speeding in the area,” said Manj. “If the officer is at fault, he’ll be dealt with just like anybody else. The positive is that no one was seriously injured.”

The officer suffered a minor concussion and the pickup driver went home with a sore wrist.

Fraser Valley Traffic Services was called in to investigate the crash.
